"After the first round he [Anderson Silva] said he broke his ribs. He said told me he could not breath because of the rib. I told him to forget the rib and work the movement of legs and he would get the triangle… After the fight he went to the hospital and did an x-ray and the doctor said he did not break it, it was just a crack," Lemos said.

"Anderson is expected to return in February or March."

I think this says a lot, at some time I think somebody said he went into the fight with a rib injury, and here his BJJ Coach is saying it happened in the first round.

Anderson said in the post fight interview that he had a rib injury going into the fight. I wouldn't be surprised if he did and that something happened during the fight which exacerbated the injury.

Makes you wonder about how the fight would go down if both men were 100% That being said, who is ever 100%? Chael probably had things going on with him, too, but he knew saying something about it wouldn't do him any good and would probably only make him lose face.

Just makes me think that a rematch with Sonnen won't happen, and that perhaps he only has one or two fights left before he decides to hang 'em up.

Germany has no main event. I bet it now will be belfort. Vs either okami or sonnen

I think the only fair thing is to put vitor vs sonnen but I don't know if it will happen because they risk losing a contender

#1 title contention shot should be made. imho it should be Okami and Belfort. Sonnen just got a shot and even tho he dominated he lost in the end. Its someone elses chance now.
