It seems that all too often these days the hot topic on everyone’s mind in the MMA world is superfights. Whether it’s Anderson Silva vs. George St. Pierre or Jon Jones it seems as though everyone is dead set on finding a way to make them happen. Of course these are very appealing options and would certainly draw the big crowds and revenue the UFC desires, however there is still top
Tag "Anderson Silva"
Last night the old guard held their own. Anderson Silva is still alone atop the mountain at Stephan Bonnar’s expense this time. Big Nog knocked off another hungry young heavyweight in Dave Herman, and Jon Fitch derailed Erick Silva’s hype train with a dominant win over the young Brazilian power house. Talent in the MMA world has evolved so rapidly, many of the stars in the sport fail to evolve
Stephan Bonnar is coming in to this fight against Anderson Silva as the largest underdog in MMA history. Although he is heavily outmatched against “The Spider” Silva, he has never been knocked out or submitted and always throws down with reckless abandon. Watch the video below where you can learn about Stephan Bonnar’s historic past and Anderson Silva’s historic reign in the UFC. VIDEO COURTESY OF THE UFC..
The moment it was announced that Anderson Silva would be moving up a weight class and his next opponent would be Stephan Bonnar, the cries went out that its a publicity stunt on the part of the UFC, that the fight is meaningless, and Stephan Bonnar has no chance of beating the most dominant man in the history of the UFC. Even Rocky had a better underdog shot of winning

Sure both men are at completely different stages in their careers yet, what the hell, if you can’t watch the trailer for UFC 153 below without breaking out a couple goosebumps, you have no soul. Bonnar might not have earned his shot at the champ, but he has
Bonnar hasn’t even fought a bigger name than the man he fought in his first official UFC appearance against Forrest Griffin when he lost a decision in the UFC’s first Ultimate Fighter Finale (TUF). Ironically since then, Silva destroyed Griffin years later when he was easily closer to his prime than when he fought Bonnar.
It’s time for Michael Bisping to get his shot at the title, regardless of his recent statements that have rubbed many the wrong way. Unless the UFC pulls Chris Weidman from his match with Tim Boetsch, pitting him against Bisping for a number one contendership one off, I say give Bisping the next shot at Anderson Silva’s belt.

He talks about his plan to hopefully allow Silva to break his hand or foot on his head to open up a chance for him to win the fight.

The UFC seems to be at a state of emergency lately. First UFC 151 was cancelled because the fighter that deserved the shot wouldn’t step up, and now UFC 153 went from a great card, to not even PPV worthy. The UFC lost Jose Aldo and Rampage Jackson the same day and it seemed like Frankie Edgar was going to stay on the card and just get another opponent. After
