UFC 117 Results: Anderson Silva survives Sonnen Onslaught

Quick Write Up: Chael Sonnen surprised me by destroying Silva for 4 rounds and almost a 5th before being tapped by Silva. Silva showed some heart by taking a beating yet coming out with the Win. Fitch wrestled his way to a dominating win. Guida came up with a good win over Rafael Dos Anjos. Hughes continues to add on to his impressive career with a nice submission victory. Junior Dos Santos destroyed Roy Nelson, although Nelson proved his chin is solid.

My only loss was Hallman beating Saunders in the opening prelims bout. This shoots me up to 39-25. Still not what I’d like to see but a big improvement.
