I don't think Bonnar should go for any take downs. This could very well be his last fight ever, I think he wants to put on a show. Taking Spider to the ground and getting submitted is now how Bonnar wants to leave this sport. He wants to show his heart and toughness by eating repeated shots on the feet and going out like a warrior.

Honestly, Bonnars best chance to win this fight to go after Silva right from the buzzer, whether he wrestles, or comes with strikes. Fighters that have followed that game plan have done best against Anderson, because if you stand there and let him have time to figure out your movement, it would be too late.

I honestly don't think Bonnar has the wrestling to take Silva down. So he'll probably end up doing what he does best, and standing/brawling.

This is a weird fight because I can't see Silva not dominated, but I can't imagine Bonnar getting dominating. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

One major difference here is often times in 5 round fights you see the fighters try to pace themselves. But this is a rare 3 round fight for Silva in the UFC. I think they will get it going fairly quickly.

They usually are, but this fight is only 3 rounds.

Bonnar should talk him down. It'd be the only way he could hope to prolong the inevitable conclusion of him getting finished. At least losing by sub would mean he doesn't lose any teeth and/or brain function. But..., even if Bonnar could get Silva down in the 1st round, he wouldn't finish by sub against the superior BJJ artist. If this were to happen, this would be pretty much exactly like Fail Sonnen 2 or the Hendo fight.

What everyone is posting is that they want Bonnar to actually match skills with Silva, in which he has NO chance. In ground grappling, Silva wins. In submissions, Silva wins. In clinching, Silva wins. Bonnar has NO chance at working on a grappling style, because in grappling there is no "anything can happen". It becomes a real gameplan, and a guy like Bonnar cant have a gameplan walking in.

Bonnar needs to go all out American Psycho, run through Anderson's attacks and try to smash his face in. Could he get KOed? 90% chance. But against someone like Spider, I'd like those odds.

This fight is so silly, it's the kind of fight that's so silly, it ends up going completely the wrong way.

If I was a betting man I'd put a little on Bonnar just for the hell of it.

Calling it now, Bonnar by lop-sided decision. 30-27.

That's just crazy. I think betting on Bonnar to make it to the score cards could be a decent bet to make. But I wouldn't bank on Bonnar winning a single round. Bonnar will be Bonnar. One of the best punching bags ever to step into a cage.
