I honestly don't think Bonnar has the wrestling to take Silva down. So he'll probably end up doing what he does best, and standing/brawling.

This is a weird fight because I can't see Silva not dominated, but I can't imagine Bonnar getting dominating. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.
One major difference here is often times in 5 round fights you see the fighters try to pace themselves. But this is a rare 3 round fight for Silva in the UFC. I think they will get it going fairly quickly.
