A surprise fight between Stephan Bonnar and Rampage Jackson could be brewing after Bonnar called out the former UFC light-heavyweight champion on Saturday.

Bonnar posted his third straight victory with a unanimous decision win over Kyle Kingsbury at UFC 139, during which he once again displayed his granite chin.

The UFC veteran has never been knocked out in his MMA career, only suffering two TKO losses due to cuts. He is also one of only two people to last the distance with reigning champion Jon Jones.

Following victory over Kingsbury, Bonnar told MMA Weekly that he has "always wanted to fight Rampage". And president Dana White later revealed that Rampage is up for the battle.

"Rampage texted me tonight and said he wants to fight him too," White said. "I don't know, we'll see."

Love Bonnar, and would MUCH prefer to see him against Griffin.

Bonnar, at this point in his career, I think would easily beat Tito, best Forrest and also beat Rampage. He's looked great lately. His chins still as solid as ever, and his 'never say die' attitude combined with his recent training ethic will get him far imo.

I would totally support bonnar vs griffin as TUF coaches and see them fight vs each other again. As has been mentioned plenty of times before, i see Bonnar winning this.

I always thought Bonnar won that first fight as well. I'd back him massively in a third installment

Griffin said he doesn't want to fight anymore & wants to retire. Bonnar calling him out is like calling out Dan Hardy or Matt Hughes, imo.

I'll be glad if Bonnar fights Rampage at least he'll have an opportunity to see if his cockiness is justified & test himself as opposed to picking on someone whose fighting days are done.

I struggle to understand how any UFC fighter could be labeled a chicken. Do you really think a man who gets in the cage and fights for a living is a "chicken" on any level? It is understandable for someone to not be anxious to fight someone else for one reason or another...but I hardly think that makes a UFC fighter a chicken. Just my opinion...

Bonnar specifically has always come to fight. He called Rampage out but the fight never happened. I have nothing but respect for the guy and would love to see him and Forrest coach TUF.

There's a good fight for Bonnar.

Bonnar would rather pick on Forrest, instead?

I don't claim to know, but it does seem a bit weak to me to callout declining fighters on the verge of retiring.

Why not callout Chuck Liddell? Yeah, I'm sure a lot of ppl would want to fight him considering his chin isn't what it used to be. In some ways that would be the move of a coward?

I don't see that Forrest is too different.

It makes sense for Tito to have a last fight against Forrest. But, unless Bonnar is planning to retire or quit fighting it doesn't make much sense for him to fight Forrest when he could possibly fight someone in the top 10.

Forest is planning on retiring so actually it does make a lot of sense for him to fight Bonnar again. I doubt Bonnar is worried about getting the belt any time soon. He just wants to put on good fights and have fun. Get off his jock.
