Anderson Silva should be counting his lucky stars this Monday morning that he still has his UFC title belt. The champ got whupped on for 22 minutes but was still able to pull out a submission with just over two minutes left in his fight against Chael Sonnen.

Perhaps next time Silva should consider calling upon the services of Jean-Claude Van Damme.
