Bonnar cheated again, Bonnar got his ass kicked, Bonnar's gone. Good riddance.

Never saw the fuss about this pillow punching "people's fighter" type bum fighter on steroids.

not everyone needs to be championship material to have a following.

Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Can't speak for him though. But if he knew he was going to retire...why not leave with respect? Why even fight if a win wouldn't of counted in the end anyway? Seems like a LOSE LOSE LOSE. He got a beatdown. He wouldn't of won even if he pulled off the unthinkable. He lost respect of his opponent (as we all know Anderson and that camp is not fond of positive tests and TRT use).

But oh well. It is Bonnar's legacy. Not mine.
Obviously Bonnar did something wrong, but I think he was operating in whatever mode. I can't speak for his fans (who are probably as biased as any fight fan would care to admit), Dana or Anderson. And based on weird things that came afloat in the past, I really wouldn't be surprised if Dana and Anderson knew about it. It will sound crazy for some, but for an end of party replacement fight like that I think possible.

Dana got the money, Anderson got the victory, Bonnar got a dent on his reputation, but got his opportunity. Life goes on. Everybody happy, or sort of...

Completely disappointed in Bonnar. Not only was he stupid for cheating but it really does make me wonder what made him think he could get away with it. It worked so well the first time he did it. Idiot.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I would have taken steroids too if I was facing Anderson Silva. I would have taken pcp right before the fight just to not die. I would take steroids for that fight not to cheat and win, but to not get hurt so badly you're life suffers from it. Look at it from Bonnar's perspective, he's out of shape and gets called up on short notice for the biggest fight of his life. Of course he's going to dope just so Anderson doesn't smash his face in and he is disfigured for life.
