Pound-for-pound king Anderson Silva might be the best Mixed Martial Artist to have ever graced the Octagon and a heavy favorite in his upcoming bout at UFC 153 with Stephan Bonnar but, unlike Bonnar, he can’t boast of having never been finished in a fight. For those thinking the Brazilian was always invincible, Silva suffered submission losses to Daiju Takase and Ryo Chonan in Japan 8-9 years before emerging in the UFC as an unbeatable force.

Meanwhile, Bonnar has only lost on the scorecards or as the result of cuts. That durability has “The American Psycho” feeling good entering this weekend’s match-up even if he’s a sacrificial lamb in the eyes of countless fans the world over.

“I’ve been hit by bigger, stronger guys and never been stopped. I mean, look at every fight I’ve ever had – I’ve been hit with lots of big shots but I get up and keep coming,” said Bonnar in an interview with the UFC. “Anderson is so damn good, but no-one has ever walked through me and I will keep coming at him no matter what he throws my way.”

Regardless of the rumble’s result, Bonnar is certain of one thing ”“ it’s gonna be a blast to watch!

“I get in there any go after it. I don’t stall, I don’t get stood up (due to inactivity), I go out there any put it on my opponent and I am going to give Anderson Silva hell,” explained the enthusiastic TUF alumnus.

Silva Has Great Respect for Bonnar’s Contributions to MMA

Bonnar will enter the bout on a three-fight winning streak and overall record of 15-7. Ten of his triumphs have involved either a TKO or submission. Comparably, Silva is 32-4 with 25 finishes and success in his last sixteen outings.
