Point in blank. Sonnen fanboys act like their boy knocked Silva flat on his back when the only thing he did was knock him off balance.
Not every knockdown automatically makes a round 10-8, and http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/UFC...-by-Play-25863
One PbPer DID have that round 10-8.
While I was looking for that, here's this:
- UFC 117: LIVE RESULTS AND PLAY-BY-PLAY | MMAWeekly.com
R1 – Sonnen comes right at Silva and eats a right hand. Silva is flipping back and forth between a right and left handed stance. Sonnen fires off a punch and drops Silva, who gets right back up.
MMA not having 8-counts doesn't change what a knockdown is.
And I could give a fuck about any sonnen nuthuggers who say he knocked silva flat out, since I have yet to see even one make that claim.
I have, however, seen many people say he knocked Silva down. All of such people tend to not be Silva nuthuggers who don't understand the terminology they are spouting off about and let their blind bias obviously affect their perception of reality.
