Silva vs. Sonnen II will determine the middleweight championship. The two had an incredible fight on Aug. 7, 2010, in Oakland, Calif. Silva retained the title that evening when he dramatically forced Sonnen to submit with just 1:50 left in the fight. Sonnen had dominated the battle prior to that moment and was expected to easily win if the fight had been decided by a judges’ decision. The epic battle would later be honored at the World MMA Awards as the Fight of the Year.
Chael Sonnen tickets and Anderson Silva tickets have been in high demand ever since that incredible battle. A triangle chokehold by Silva helped the Brazilian retain a title that he has held since he knocked out Rich Franklin on Oct. 14, 2006. That defeat of Franklin took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center just a mile to the south of the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Silva is 31-4 and has won 15 matches in a row. He is 14-0 in UFC fights.
Sonnen is ranked second in the middleweight category by Sherdog. He has put together a 27-11-1 record and won both of his fights since that Silva-Sonnen battle a couple of years ago. He has recorded a 6-4 record in UFC competition. Sonnen shot into the fighting public’s consciousness when his wrestling style helped him nearly defeat Silva. Sonnen's fighting roots date to his time as a collegiate wrestler at the University of Oregon.
