Anderson Silva by UD, with Bonnar clipping him and everyone going wild when it happens.

The fact this fight is happening is so retarded in the first place there really is no bad bet to make. A slip with Bonnar by decision would probably bank more money as a collector's item in a couple of years than the bet itself would bank if it happens.

Talking Anderson down is probably the safest course of action. No chance of getting KOed or submitted that way.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Actually thats a pretty awesome idea. I'd nearly go for that myself just to have that momento.

I already have 20 down on Anderson by Decision. 70 return if I win so not bad all in all.

Bonnar on points is 16/1, so throwing a tenner can't be a bad idea can it?

I just opened a Bodog.ca account, but I want to make sure you can get a proper physical slip from them before I put down the minimum $20.

$20 to bank $140 is just too sweet to pass up even though it doesn't look like you can pick the method on there...

Where are you seeing those odds though? On bodog it's 7/1

Yes! You are so right! Put Silva on his back and he can't finish! Ummm..., remember Fail Sonnen? Ask him if Silva can sub people from his back? Hell, ask Yushin Okami if he can KO someone from his back?

Didn't he also punish Lutter from his back?

Mentioned this earlier that Bonnar is gonna take as many shots as possible to clinch em against the fence and try to take it down. I really don't think he's going to try to strike all three rounds. Same plan I thought Griffin was going to implement...

It's gonna be a fun fight...

Oh, hey, Silva has two submissions off his back in a career spanning almost two decades! He must be some kind of submission wizard!

This is stupid. Do you realize how many people have submitted Sonnen from the bottom?
