It was the most succesful pay-per-view event of all time according to UFC president Dana White. Though it was not a long night of action in the main event, it did solidify Anderson Silva as the greatest fighter of all time. Watch as Fox Sports shows the highlight finish of Sonnen in the second after Silva survived the first round of ground and pound from his adversary.
There was a controversial knee to the chest of Sonnen that many called foul as they first thought it was to the face of Sonnen. Sonnen himself has said that he felt there was no question of it being ‘illegal’ as he has noone to blame but himself for the failed opportunity.
