Silva didn't display any "blackbelt" BJJ skills until the last round either. In any event, I hope this fight will get Silva to stop his lame prancing around the ring like a fucking ballerina.
I too felt like he was taunting him in the first round but other than one punch, it really didnt look like they were hurting him. I too was disappointed by of action of his back, he had a triangle w/ in reach in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and didnt go for it, he would control Sonnens wrist like he was getting ready but wouldnt pull the trigger until the 5th
I wonder how much the rib injury affected him. Sonnen said in the post fight conference that he believed Anderson wasnt 100% entering the fight
