The whole ‘mess with his head’ thing is a theory. I dunno if I believe it. But people do
realanimetraining replied to your post: I couldn’t agree with you more anderson silva is a monster, and cannot be stopped chael sonnen did come close one time, but anderson silva found away out of it. And he is I think one of the most well rounded fighters as well, his Striking is amazing, takedown defense is great, and the CLINCH. But he does need to work on his ground game but his defense has gotten better ever since that first chael sonnen fight, and we noticed that in the rematch. and by the way I love your blog, and your gifs !
In this most recent Sonnen fight, I think he let Chael have the first round as either a “give” or just to mess with his head. I think his takedown defense is great, otherwise.
