Ohhhh - Anderson "stepped up" to fight Bonnar on short notice. You say that like he's the savior of the card or something.
As much as I've enjoyed watching Bonnar, and he's put on some very memorable fights, he's getting to the "washed up" phase of his carrer. Maybe that wording is a bit harsh -- but I don't need to even look at the betting lines and my guess is that Anderson is a 15 to 20 to 1 favourite.
This is the biggest mis-matched main event since Couture / Toney. It's not even going to be a fight, and anyone who actually believes that Bonnar has a punchers chance is out of their god-damn mind. There's no polite way to say it.
