Trashes New York Chael Sonnen’s extended audition to become a WWE wrestler continued in earnest last night. After beating Brazilian Wanderei Silva, Sonnen turned heel on the mic: <center> > *"As I look around this arena… all I could think to myself is, 'God damn, I hate New York,'"* https://vimeo.com/223019593 </center> Chael is definitely WWE material. Well at least in this fight he proved he can actually wrestle as he ‘dry humped’ his way to victory. *Oops maybe I should watch my mouth, lest I “piss off a gangster!”* # Double knock down. Mitrione is last man standing Matt Mitrone defeated mma legend Fedor Emelianenko in the first round of their co-main event. The fight started tentatively, before exchanging right hands at the same time. Both fighters hit the floor but it was Mitrone who recovered first to pounce on Fedor and finish off the Russian while he was on the floor. > <center>*'I get knocked down… but I get up again… You’re never gonna keep me down'* https://media.giphy.com/media/9ShLQpHlCzqE0/giphy-downsized-large.gif </center> Mitrione is a former American footballer, and that ability to get knocked down and get straight up served him in good stead in this one. As for Emelianenko, he will go down as one of the greatest mma fighter ever. However Father Time catches up with everyone. He was showing signs of deterioration in his last fight (a questionable win over Fabio Maldonado). The manner of this defeat only serves to confirm the decline. I’m all for fighters, getting in, making as much money as they can and getting out before they get seriously hurt. It appears to be reaching that point for Fedor. # Chandler breaks ankle. Gets title pulled from under him So it’s the first round of your title defence. You break your ankle, yet somehow manage to knock down your opponent. The referee sees fit to stop the fight to get your foot looked at. They sit you down on a stool. Officials are in the ring looking to stop the fight. You get up to protest. You go to sit back down and a New York commissioner decides to pull the stool from under you… and the ref calls off the fight... > <center>*'Hoppin out wit two broken legs tryna walk it off'* https://media.giphy.com/media/11ebA2jJYipSmY/giphy.gif </center> ### Yep… a Bellator event definitely went down in NYC last night alright!
