I'm not sure if it has been said before already but I love the irony that Chael said at the Q&A that having a black belt in BJJ under the Nogeuria bro's is like getting a free toy in your happy meal and it was Silva's triangle choke that made him tap and get him the Win in the dying minutes.

I just watched the fight again, it was easier to watch the 2nd time as I know Silva wins I felt that although Sonnen did some damage with some good shots early on but he was never going to finish Silva with his G&P. He really wasn't doing enough damage and in the later rounds it was more about controlling the fight and maintaining top position.
