Bonnars consider naming unborn son 'Griffin'

by Kevin Iole | source:

Bonnar and his wife, Andrea, haven't decided definitively upon a name for their unborn son, but one name they've kicked around is Griffin.

As in, Griffin Bonnar. For those who aren't long-time mixed martial arts fans, those words have significant meaning in the sport.

"It started as a joke, but it kind of grew on us, to name him Griffin," Andrea Bonnar said. "Then he'd be Griffin Bonnar. It would be such a cute name and it would kind of create a tie to his dad."

No decision, though, will be made until baby Bonnar is born.

"We've got a couple of good ones in the bank, and we'll look at him when he comes out and decide," she said, laughing.

I'm just glad boxing was big enough we never had to deal with a child named Ali Frazier, Ward Gatti or Hagler Hearns. Yes, the fight was a watershed moment. But it's fast becoming an ESPN 30 in 30 flick on MMA's Chuck Wepner where a guy clings to that one fight. Yeah, Wepner dropped Ali. Bonnar and Griffin are fast becoming this.
