UFC 136 Results: What Was More Shocking, Sonnen's Comments or Edgar's TKO?

Sal DeRose@@TheSalDeRoseCorrespondent IOctober 9, 2011

UFC 136 produced some of the most epic moments of 2011 in the UFC. Chael Sonnen and Frankie Edgar please stand up.

Gray Maynard squared off against Edgar for the third time, and for the second time in a row he failed to close the very game Edgar.

Edgar came out and was knocked about in the first round again. And again, he progressively chipped away at Maynard the next three rounds. Eventually, in the fourth round he knocked out Maynard with impressively hard shots after a Maynard sprawl.

Then you have Uncle Chael. Oh boy do we love some Uncle Chael's comments. After his epic domination of Brian Stann, Chael Sonnen stood up and called out the middleweight champion in the post-fight interview with Joe Rogan.

"Anderson Silva, you absolutely SUCK," Sonnen said to Silva, in attendance at UFC 136.

Sonnen then went on to tell Silva he wants to raise the stakes.

"If I win you leave the middleweight division. If I lose, I will leave the UFC forever," Sonnen exclaimed to a roaring Houston crowd.

But are those comments more shocking then Edgar's TKO? It is a resounding no, by far. You can come to expect these sort of comments from the ringmaster himself, Uncle Chael.

As much as I may have been screaming at the top of my lungs about how epic his comments were, Edgar's knockout was the shocking moment. Edgar's last knockout was in July of 2007. Sonnen's last shocking comment was probably yesterday.

So in all honesty, as awesome as Chael's comments may have been, Edgar's third career knockout of a guy who had arguably beaten him twice before is more shocking.
