Andre Galvao Vs Chael Sonnen Metamoris 4 GIF Highlights

The headliner of the evening:  Chael Sonnen – an elite level UFC fighter known for his gruelling ground and pound who was within 2 minutes of defeating Anderson Silva squaring off against one of the most decorated Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighters of all time – Andre Galvao.  The odds gave Sonnen even worse odds than anyone who has faced Ronda Rousey so far, but it was one of the most exciting matches in a barn burner of an event.
