Silva drops people with jabs - its not punching power really, more accuracy - he aims right for the point of the chin and drops people easy.

Bonnar won't go limp, he has a hell of a chin and Silva isn't known for putting out limp fighters. Limp to me means KO (defined), Silva is definitely a TKO guy. He leaves opponents bruised, battered and bloody - hurt and covering up when the ref stops it. He is also jumping weight classes so his power will wane a bit. No way this goes the distance if Bonnar comes with his usual gameplan; tko in the beginning of the 2nd.

EDIT: Alpha beat me to it

IF Bonnar actually stand with Anderson & he doesn't try the Sonnen-method, then I fully expect him to get knocked the F out, as he has that style of not being careful standing. Anderson will tag his chin so easily, it's gonna be like hitting the bag.

From reading your posts the last few months I have come to the conclusion that you really don't like Anderson Silva, but you don't want to admit it either (maybe i'm wrong about the admittance part)

Stephan's wrestling is not nearly good enough to get Anderson down, this will be a brutal fight, I just pray it last more than 1 round.

In an interview he mentioned that Stephan is a dangerous opponent so he'll look to finish within the first. I was like dayam...

In the LHW division he does not play around. T minus four hours!

Will Bonnar disrespect his fallen opponent by doing a gyrating crotch dance when he wins?

I doubt it!

Will you guys be disappointed if Anderson Knocks him out in the first round without there being much of a fight?

I'd love to see Bonnar win but I just don't see it happening.

I think this will look similar to the second Rich Franklin fight. Bonnar will do well for about the first minute or so then Anderson will begin to find his rythym and eventually TKO Bonnar on second kound knees.
