Might sound jaded but IMO Bonnar had one good fight in him. He must have had the same thought sometime before he got popped for roids idk.

interesting fight, my opinion is Bonnar needs to avoid going to the ground wiht Vemola as his Ground and pound is scary, but if they stay standing I think Bonnar may be able to beat Vemola using his striking

Big f'in IF, friend. Bonnar doesn't have the best TDD, and Vemola is young, hungry, POWERFUL and will generally jsut be too overwhelming for Bonnar. Bonnar will fight very hard for 3 rounds and he has heart, so can see a comfortable uanimous decision victory for Karlos. Maybe even a stoppage at some point.

Vemola is a psyhcopath, but he's going against the *American Psycho*...he he he...

Bonnar is one of the toughest SOBs in the game. He hasn't been stopped by anyone in his entire career - except for some cuts.

He has quite an advantage over Vemola as far as experience, striking and grappling is concerned. And his cardio/conditioning is great also.

On the other hand, Vemola will hold a big advantage in terms of strength/power against Bonnar. He is like a mini Hulk.
Seeing how Bonnar was taken down and decisioned by Coleman (i still can't think of how that happened...), i think that's what Vemola will be looking for in this fight also: taking Bonnar down and trying to GnP him to a stoppage. (cuts)

His win over Petruzelli though, doesn't say much about him. And we don't know much about his cardio.

This is gonna be a very interesting...and hopefully, exciting fight.

Huge fight for both guys, so many things could go in either fighters direction. I like Bonnar's chances against Vemola, I don't trust Vemola's cardio and Bonnar is physically on par with HW's. This is one of those fights where we will be able to tell on the weigh ins whose going to win.

I remember Bonnar was full of potential, then kind of went on the decline, but I think he bounced back and has looked really great against him latest opponents.

I was thinking I wanted to see him against stiffer competition than his previous opponents.

Wish, wait for it....granted!
