Apart from the war of words between them, the main reason why this fight is as expected is because the first version was punishing the challenger champion for four rounds and a half until the submission saved the undefeated "Spider" in the UFC.
No one had ever put on the spot to the best of all time. I repeat, never.
The revenge is nothing new in this sport. Neither are in other sports like boxing, along the lines of combat disciplines. Always remember the Ali-Frazier, Duran-Leonard, Sugar Ray Robinson, Jack LaMotta, to name a few.
One of the most recent is the one that confronted Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber and had it not been for Dominick Cruz injury, had fought at UFC 148. The first fight was won by Faber when they were part WEC but the rematch took the current 145-pound champion at UFC 132 in July 2011, coincidentally on another billboard weekend of July 4 as the one comes in just days. For the "Dominator" revenge was sweet, since its only loss in his career it was this that gave him the "California Kid".
These are just some of the revenge-rivalries that have existed in the UFC and have made history in this sport. In general, have been among the best fighters, have disputed titles, and honors have been split up have become trilogies.
For this and for the value to the sport Anderson Silva, his combat this July 7 against Chael Sonnen has historic dimensions.
