It was a good time, the crowd was crazy....very big Brazilian fan base. I will post pics later when I get time!
Cool, it did seem like the crowd was really amped up. And congratulations on winning the predictions.

here is my take .. i said anderson would walk through chael, and i was wrong ... too much controversy in this fight ... from anderson rubbing teh grease, to grabbing the shorts, to the iffy knee on the ground (all illegal moves imo) ... chael did good in the first again, but he looked tentative when in the mount ... what is the sense of getting the mount if you arent going to throw shots or go for a sub ... fight reminded me of the franklin/shamrock fight .. ken was doing good until he slipped and rich capitalized ...

The knee wasnt iffy, it was legal. Lets crush that now.

Apparently there seems to be many issues stemming from the main fight

1) People are claiming its not a good performance from Anderson Silva because
a) he was dominated in the first
b) he finished be capitalizing on Sonnens Great Mistake

2) many people are claiming that Anderson Silvas Knee was illegal

3) many people are claiming that Anderson Silva cheated somehow due to grease

4) people are hinting that Chael Sonnen gave up, and cant understand what on earth he was thinking in that spinning whatever it was that put him on the ground in the second

Here is my reflections on the matter
