Zuffa will have their private jet ready for Bonnar immediately following UFC 153

Is Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White predicting a massive upset?

The Las Vegas fight boss is gassing up his private jet and handing Stephan Bonnar the keys, just in case he needs to make a hasty exit from the HSBC Arena this Saturday night (Oct. 13, 2012) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, after his main event showdown against hometown hero and pound-for-pound king Anderson Silva.

But it has nothing to do with winning or losing.

Instead, "The American Psycho" will rush home to be by his wife's side. As TMZ reports, she's expected to have a baby by the end of the month. Sure, he's still got time, but childbirth is just like the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA), anything can happen.

Will that hold true on fight night?

Despite ruling the roost at 185 pounds for what seems like forever, "The Spider" has made a few trips north to test his might against some of the top dogs at light heavyweight. Most notably, former division champion Forrest Griffin, who was knocked silly in their UFC 101 encounter back in late 2009.

Bonnar will now try to finish what his old TUF battle buddy started.

Maybe this pre-fight "daddy" angle is a way to get inside Silva's head? Perhaps instill a sense of pity when the cage door closes, allowing the underdog to capitalize on the champion's hesitation and bring one home for his bouncing baby boy (or girl)?

Stranger things have happened.

So if he looks like shit and gets destroyed will he blame it on his wife having a baby like Forrest did against shogun?

Are they running a similarity contest with Forrest, whose wife was about to give birth after his Rio fight as well?

If they are, i don't like Stephans chances here. :D

I just hope they name their child Griffin Bonnar.

And their second child Griffin Bonnar 2, a overhyped, underwhelming and boring younger sibling

This is just to pump and hype the fight much more!

No room for violins in this sport. I thought Griffin gave Bonnar advice, he knows what it is to fight Silva, and he knows what it is to fight a renowned Brazillian at home then play the new baby card.

"I have fought Anderson Silva" should be enough of a legitimate excuse for losing a fight. :)
