Fan’s take: Why Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar will be exciting!


By Chase Raymond:

When two of the main event fighters had to pull out of UFC 153 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, we all thought, oh no here we go again. Then some time went by and we all wandered, would someone step up and save the card, or would it be cancelled like UFC 151?

Then the UFC announced that Anderson Silva had signed up to fight in his homeland and make sure that UFC 153 would go on. Then the UFC announced that Stephan Bonnar would be his opponent and we all were confused. With Bonnar’s last fight being a unanimous decision win against Kyle Kingsbury on Nov. 19th 2011, and no real “big name” wins in years, we all thought “the American psycho” was done fighting and moving onto announcing.

Then I thought about it and I can see where the UFC is coming from and I have to tell you, it’s actually brilliant. If you’re a fan of MMA and tired of seeing people try to hold Silva down for five rounds then Bonnar is the man you want to see fight against “The Spider.” This is going to be a “nothing to lose” fight for Bonnar because there is not many expecting him to win, there is no title on the line, and best of all there is no need for Bonnar to just sit back and try to out point Silva… (Cont. reading on page 2)

  1. RNC says:

    I’m looking forward to this fight, I fully expect the spider to win but I have a feeling Bonnar might have some good moments in this fight

  2. some guy says:

    I cant wait to watch this fight, the american psycho will probably not get the W but i fully expect him to bring the fight to Anderson, unlike lame ass forest! its going to be a war and probably a bloody one at that, blood coming from Bonner that is hahaha

  3. Xaninho says:

    Bonnar is one tough dude with big cojones.

  4. Bitch Ass Greg J. says:

    Bonnar will become a punching bag for 3 rounds. But I don’t see this dude giving up. He only has one style, and that’s pushing forward at all times. The Spider will definitely earn his paycheck for this fight. Still don’t see an upset though.

  5. chuck says:

    This fight is in brazil, theres no way anderson doesnt win via fantastic finsh. Not saying bonnar will go out without a fight but he wont win this.

  6. M says:

    The only way you can finish Anderson is to submit him.

    I don’t want Anderson to lose but would be nice to see a threat

  7. MMASovereign says:

    You guys are drinking the cool aid if you think this fight will be much different then the Forests fight. While I always like watching Anderson fight and will pay to see it I am disappointed. Anderson is starting to get older and will be looking to retire over the next couple years. Hate to see him blow 6 months until his next fight on Bonar who doesn’t possess knock out power to even have a punchers chance.

  9. Guss says:

    I see this fight turning out just like Silva vs Griffen. And like Forrest, Bonnar will keep moving forward and make a fight of it. It’ll be one sided, but it will be fun to watch as well.

  10. Unknown says:

    I don’t see an upset either, but is it worth laying 200 to win 1500?
