Silva vs. Bonnar Will Be Nothing Like Silva vs. Griffin Insists UFC President | UFC NEWS


“There’s nothing wrong with fun fights, you can put on some fun fights sometimes. What people don’t realize is what a huge ‘Rocky’ story this is for Stephan [who's] been this guy that’s been right there. So many times he’s been so close. He’s on a three-fight winning streak and felt like there were no big fights for him and boom, this opportunity comes up. I know Stephan Bonnar, I know how much this means to him. He’s going after it. He’s gonna try to win this fight, it’s the biggest fight of his life. He’s gonna be so much bigger than Anderson in this fight it’s gonna be crazy. Anderson has fought at 205 before and you saw what he did with Forrest (Griffin), but this is a completely different fight. This is a dangerous fight for Anderson.”

Much has been said about the UFC 153 main event between Anderson Silva and Stephan Bonnar.

Some say the bout is not interesting enough and that Bonnar doesn’t deserve a shot at the P4P king. However in all fairness, the original main event was cancelled when Jose Aldo was forced out with an injury, and Silva stepped up on three-weeks notice to face whoever the UFC put in front of him. That man was Stephan Bonnar.

In a recent interview with ESPN, Dana White defends his decision to promote this fight and explains that it wont be as one sided as the Forrest Griffin vs. Anderson Silva fight.

  1. Keep Fitch says:

    The title of this article is such so stupid whoever the writer is should go hang himself.

  2. Zack says:

    The only reason it won’t be like silva vs Griffen is bcuz bonnar actually has a chin. I see Anderson completely decimating bonnar standing before chocking him out via rnc in round 2.

    • Quazzi says:

      What killed forrest was silva’s speed. Bonnar has a better chin but i dont think he is faster than forrest and if he is not by much. If bonnar cant take silva down he is in trouble

  3. 123 says:

    i see it being like the yushin okami fight in brazil, boring.

  4. maurice says:

    Boring? Yushin fight was easily one of andersons best performances. Stuffed all yushin takedowns and toyed with him until the brutal fonish

  5. Thom says:

    He’s right. It’ll be more like Silva vs Irving.

  6. Sasquatch says:

    No doubt Dana told Silva to take it easy on him and give the fans there money’s worth.

  7. Irishfan says:

    No one can take a word Dana says seriously anymore all he wants to do is sell the fight so of course he won’t admit that Bonnar doesn’t have a chance of winning

  8. Eric says:

    We all know Anderson’s gonna beat Bonnar, but I don’t think it’s gonna be as bad as the Irving or Griffin fights.

  9. 123 says:

    anderson silva vs yushin okami in brazil was boring, they made a big deal out of it saying this will be his toughest fight & he embarrassed him… because its in brazil they give him stephan bonnar? why not an actual contender like chris weidman or michael bisping.

  10. daveyB says:

    His name is IRVIN, you dumbasses.

  11. Jnr#1 says:

    I thought you said his name was irwin… Dumbass you say hey?

  12. Dick Diaz says:

    how crazy would it be if Bonnar wins?! lmaooo; damn Dana White knows how to sell noise…

  13. Bonnar is going to get annihilated. It is going to be a short fight. Dana will be dissapointed as usual. He wants too much. He hopes and wishes, but there is this thing called reality that can’t seem to grasp.

  14. crap fight. Boooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Ray Robertson says:

    I think this fight will be entertaining for sure, you want to know why go read the article from the other day on this site, the title was like Fans take: why anderson vs. bonnar will be an exciting fight, it was on point, and btw what is the guy that posted and said the title of this story sucked, i dont get it

  16. GRT 3000 says:

    nigga plz…Anderson is going to kick the living shit oughta Bonnar inside of 2 rounds. nothing against Bonnar, I think he’s a decent guy with heart and also some good skills. But he is just way oughta his league on this one.

  17. jobert says:

    Yeah it’s EWING…. Patrick Ewing….

  18. Josiah says:

    steven seagal vs bonnar might be more interesting……………
