Pros react to Chael Sonnen defeating Wanderlei Silva

Chael Sonnen picked up his first win since August of 2013 last night at Madison Square Garden in New York.

“The American Gangster” defeated bitter rival Wanderlei Silva via unanimous decision in the main event of Bellator NYC.

The fight played out as many expected it would, with Sonnen utilizing his strong wrestling skills to keep “The Axe Murderer” on his back for the better majority of fifteen minutes.

Wanderlei was able to drop Sonnen in the first-round, this after scoring a knee followed by a punch, but was unable to put Chael away after the knockdown.

Here is how the pros reacted to last night’s Wanderlei Silva vs Chael Sonnen scrap:
