UFC Middleweight Anderson Silva

Hardcore fight fans are accustomed to seeing Ryron and Rener Gracie breakdown submissions on their popular YouTube page, but “UFC Ultimate Insider” has recruited the tapout technicians to help explain the Hail Mary triangle-armbar middleweight champ Anderson Silva (Pictured) slapped on Chael Sonnen at UFC 117.

For Uncle Sonnen’s sake, hopefully he has his pen and pad ready to take extensive notes. Because as good ‘ol George W. Bush once brilliantly said, “There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — [pause] — shame on you. Fool me — [pause] — You can’t get fooled again.”

After manhandling Silva for nearly five complete rounds in their initial shootout, Sonnen was abruptly submitted with only 110 ticks remaining on the clock. The sequel jumps off this Saturday inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This scrap marks the most anticipated rematch in mixed martial arts history.
