Not that it matters, but we have obtained a copy of the official scorecard for Saturday night’s main event at UFC 117 between middleweight champion Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen.
Sonnen had the scrap well in hand until the fifth round horn was forced to sound. All three judges had the challenger pulling off the upset if he could have held on for another couple of minutes. Two of the three officials sitting Octagon-side had Sonnen winning the first round 10-8, while one of them also awarded him the third stanza by the same margin.
However, it was all for naught as Silva escaped Oakland, California with his middleweight belt fasten securely around his waist. If anything, the scorecards just rub massive amounts of salt onto Sonnen’s fresh and deep wounds.
