Judges Scorecards and FightMetric: Absolute domination by Chael SonnenPosted on August 8, 2010, 01:30 AM by Anton Gurevich
Chael Sonnen declared himself "devastated" following the defeat against Anderson Silva at the UFC 117 main event, and he has every right to feel so.
Judges scorecards from the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California reveal a clear victory for the Oregonian by all the judges in all four scored rounds, what could've been one of the biggest upsets in MMA history. FightMetric.com also shows that Chael Sonnen was in full control, before getting submitted by a perfectly executed Triangle Choke.
It's still unclear if Sonnen will get a desired rematch, but it can be safely declared that the talented wrestler was Silva's toughest test so far inside the Octagon.
