Anderson Silva Refuses To Take "Dangerous" Stephan Bonnar Lightly | UFC NEWS

“I’ve got that responsibility on my back and I’m part of the UFC family. Everyone can do what they can to help. It was a case where the event might have been cancelled and I’m just doing my part. If my team said I wasn’t in the condition to do that, I wouldn’t do it. In this situation I felt like I could step up and save the show. In my opinion, Stephan Bonnar is a great athlete and a part of the history of the UFC. He has a ton of value in the UFC. He is a very dangerous guy. He’s good on his feet, a good wrestler, has good groundwork and has good takedown defense. You can’t take anyone lightly in there because anything can happen. You can get submitted or knocked out at any time.”

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva addressed the media on yesterday’s UFC 153 pre-fight tele-conference to discuss next weeks main event between himself and Stephan Bonnar.

Is the champ accurate with his depiction of his next opponent?
