Since we're going all Conspiracy Theory here, how about Silva's knee to the face when Sonnen was on the ground?
Notice you didn't see a replay of Silva's knee to the body for a few minutes? You know, until 'the truck' could make it not look so bad?
I waited forever to see that replay and it was chopped up and cut short. Sonnen might have thrown a stupid backfist, but he took the illegal knee to the face like a boss and that's why he gets Jones.
Also, he's just about the only person that wants to do that outside of big heavyweights. Other fighters might bitch about not getting the shot, but none of them were exactly chomping at the bit to take it. Sonnen was.
Silva's very lucky he got a win instead of a DQ and a big part of that was Sonnen letting the illegal knee go, because the man is a visionary.
