The UFC could make me believe my little sister has a chance against Anderson Silva.

I don't know why they aren't pushing some of the other, actually competitive and interesting fights. Still some solid matchups on this card. Also I fully expect Stephan to be able to take everything Anderson can dish out for the 1st round. I think he is going to take a historic asswhoopin here. But that is what he does best.

I'm honestly half rooting for Bonnar in this fight. I mean there's a very slim chance he'll win, but it's just one of those things where you're like "yeah, I know it'll never happen, but wouldn't it be insane?!"

Yeah I'm rooting for Bonnar. But I don't think he even really has a "punchers chance". If he can go out and put on a show and stay alive for 15 min then that will be a win for him.

Bonnar has a chance. Not a good chance but a chance none the less. As the clip shows he has nothing to lose from this fight and that is a dangerous aspect.

Bonnar has given some decent fighters tough fights(Evans, Jones, Griffin) and he has looked pretty good in his last few fights. He will come forward 100 miles per hour and he has never been stopped except by cuts. He isn't going to mentally fold like Griffin did and he will try to make the most of this opportunity.

This chance is exactly like Rocky vs Apollo 1 and I wouldn't even be that surprised to see it go somewhat similar to that fight(Apollo beat Rocky up pretty good early and got the win in the end but Rocky hung in there and made it close).

Everyone knows this is an awful fight for Bonnar and hopefuls hang onto his toughness and size advantage... I don't see that.

I think Anderson performs BETTER at LHW, despite the lack of footage to support this. I think he's more comfortable at this weight, moves better, just looks more agile.

It'd be great if Bonnar does make it a scrap but I believe 205lb Silva is actually better than the one we usually see, and I think this will be a demolition.

Anderson at 205 is a completely different beast. He actually hits a LOT harder and he does not play around.

Stephan has an under utilized grappling game. I think he's going to throw wild punches to go for the clinch against the fence, dirty box, and eventual take down. I believe that will be his game plan.

He can not be crazy enough to want to exchange...or is he.
