I'm way more excited for this than any fight that makes sense right now. 100% on-board the American Psycho Train. I mean it isn't like he's going to do worse than Griffin right?

At first I thought this would be interesting, but the more I think about this fight, the more it just seems like a complete waste of Silva's remaining fights and time before he retires.

I know it's a replacement fight, but this will take time out of his calendar like anything else, and in the big picture it's pushing back fights that are actually relevant and interesting, like Weidman and GSP.

Bonnar has literally nothing but a puncher's chance here, this'll either be a complete clowning or a Silva dancearound.

This will be Silva/Forrest all over again.

I love Bonnar, but Silva will dismantle him quickly.

Always Support: Sonnen, Hendo, GSP, Belcher, JDS, Aldo, Ellenberger, Edgar, Maynard, Korean Zombie. Whoever is fighting Jon Jones

I bet Bonner last twice as long as Forrest..

I hope, if its a massacre then the hate threads will go on for weeks.

Well, twice as long is still a first round stoppage. He would just get destroyed a little longer.

There are a boat load of MMA fans who are criticizing the quality of fights and the UFC for not putting on fights we should be seeing, even if we have to wait longer to see them. This fight for Silva is fluff, make no mistake about it.

Learn how to differentiate others opinions instead of being a fan boy and dropping the obligatory one liner in your posts because you are still in denial, just some advice.
