I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm much more intrigued by the rematch of Silva vs. Sonnen than I was for their original fight. I understood the value add of Sonnen's pre-fight hype antics, but I'd by lying if I said I was a willing consumer of them. I also knew Sonnen had a chance to win that fight, but I never imagined it would go the way it did. This time it is the champion who is uncharacteristically vocal, but the challenger has the confidence of a previous performance to lean on. It is rare that the winner of a fight has to make significantly more adjustments than the loser in the rematch in order to win.
