Anderson Silva and the Top 10 Jaw Dropping Moments of the Last Decade

Anderson Silva's surprising fifth-round victory over Chael Sonnen Saturday night hasn't just secured its place amongst the greatest fights in history, but one of the most shocking sports moments ever.

After landing blow after blow, Sonnen seemed ready to snatch the middleweight championship right out of the tired fingers of Silva, before the Brazilian unleashed a barrage of lethal elbows, a bottom punch, on into a masterful triangle.
