Mixed Martial Myths and Musings

Anderson Silva has a loss on his record from Ryo Chonan from a flying scissor heel hook at 3:08 of Round 3.   It could be the best submission of all time.   Part of that was the fact that he was being thrashed by Silva before he pulled it off which makes it double awesome.   I admit that I told that story several times and I thought Chonan was getting smashed.  

I've rewatched several times and Chonan was dominating the fight in every way according to the announcers and myself as well.   He was headed for a decision win.  So not only is the myth wrong but it took even more balls to pull that low % move when you are clearly winning in the last round.   Why is nobody talking re-match.  


By the way ,  that card (shockwave 2004) is also the same card as another incident that some people think is a myth.

The statement "Mark has a cu*t" was said by an announcer (Randy Couture I think) followed by some awkward silence and a giggle or two.

He meant to say "Mark Hunt has a cut".


Any opinions ????

I think no-one is screaming rematch because Chonan has gone something like 11-9 (1-3 UFC) since their fight and Anderson has gone 17-1 (15-0 UFC). Anderson has also been facing nothing but the best where Chonan has stayed in Asia fighting the Asian circuit of talent. Had Chonan of seen any pitance of success in the UFC, I am sure they would have had that rematch all lined up  (see Yushin Okami).

That makes sense,  Chonan is all over the place.   I just figured maybe Silva would go back and clean up like Chuck did with Jeremy Horn.  If Chonan wanted it I think a little trash talking would do the trick,,,,,,,,if he speaks.   cheers.   frp

Also , it's a highlight reel submission of the century,  that has to stick with you.

Awesome sub and i think that is why they brought Chonan into the UFC for a while.  He just does not have it anymore though.
