Chael Sonnen put on one helluva performance in the main event of UFC 117 but it still wasnt enough to wrestle the middleweight title away from Anderson Silva.  Sonnen dominated the first 4 rounds and seemed well on his way to an upset win when Silva pulled a triangle choke out of nowhere and submitted the challenger in the 5th and final round.

Also on the card, Jon Fitch wrestled his way to a future welterweight title shot with a decision win over Thiago Alves.  Alves couldnt cut weight for the fight and it showed as Fitch dominated all 3 rounds.  Matt Hughes scored a submission win by choking out Ricardo Almeida while Clay Guida broke Rafael Dos Anjos jaw and forced him to tap in there fight.  The opening bout on the main card saw Junior Dos Santos win an unanimous decision over Roy Nelson
