Silva vs Sonnen: Watch the Full UFC 117 Fight Video
I would not be surprised if there were MMA fans out there that the first thing they did every morning upon waking was reach onto their nightstand, grab a marker and cross another day off a calendar that has July 7 circled in bright red ink.
For on that day, July 7, the most anticipated fight of 2012 will take place, the rematch between UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and the man that has come the closest to defeating him in the UFC, Chael Sonnen.
That’s right, to borrow from Sonnen, on 7/7 at 7:00 p.m. in the west, 10:00 p.m. in the east, the UFC 148 pay-per-view card will begin and in the final fight of that card two men with an extreme dislike for each other will settle their differences in the Octagon. At stake will be the UFC middleweight crown.
The build up to the bout has been intense, we all know that Sonnen can throw down trash talk with the best of them, but when Silva unleashed a torrent of vitriol during the recent UFC 148 media call, things got even more interesting.
No one had ever heard such bile spewed from the mouth of the champ before and the words thrown around let it be known that, at least for him, the fight on July 7 was going to be very personal.
If the non-stop trash talk from Sonnen and the recent return volley from Silva was not enough to get you psyched for a rematch, perhaps the full video from when the two met at UFC 117 will whet your whistle, and if after watching the initial meeting of these two and listening to the UFC 148 media call doesn’t get you ready for this fight, you may need to rethink what it means to be a fan of mixed martial arts.
