UFC on FOX 2 | Controversy Surrounds Co-Main Event But Sonnen Now Set To Rematch Anderson Silva
Sonnen earned his shot at Anderson Silva tonight in the co-main event of the UFC on FOX 2 card against Michael Bisping, but did he actually earn it?
The outcry from fans are obvious, the majority think Bisping was robbed.
UFC president Dana White took to twitter immediately following the bout, but stopped short of calling it a bad decision. “30-27 is soooooooo bad it’s insane. That judge should never be allowed to watch a fight again,” said the UFC president.
In the second fight of the FOX broadcast the brash Brit Michael Bisping took on the Oregon gangster Chael Sonnen.
Bisping was able to deliver on his promise to the fans and he gave the number two ranked middleweight, Chael Sonnen all he could handle inside the three frames of action. For the first two rounds Sonnen was unable to mount any kind of real ground assault and the few times he took Bisping down Bisping was able to quickly get back to his feet.
The two fighters kept a relentless pace throughout the entire fight, but it appeared that Bisping outpointed Sonnen in the first two frames of action using superior striking and cage control to earn the rounds.
The fight was close; the only decisive round was the third where Sonnen was able to maintain dominant position on top for almost four full minutes. But in the end much to the surprise of many Sonnen walked away with the unanimous decision victory to earn his shot at Anderson Silva’s title.
But I ask you again, Does he deserve it?
