"Yeah, a chance to fight the greatest pound-for-pound in the world in a place like Brazil is just crazy," he said. "It feels like I'm in a movie."

Bonnar is no fool. He is aware that he'll be considered a historic underdog at UFC 153. He also knows the limitations of his fighting style. That doesn't make it any less exciting for him to step in with Silva. After all, this is what he wanted. A fight against a big name. A fight against someone who mattered, even if it wasn't for a title.

It was almost a vindication of his career philosophy.

"I just did it for fun, not really for any belts," he said of his career, speaking in the past tense like the retired fighter he was just a few weeks ago. "And now I’m fighting the greatest pound-for-pound guy who’s been the champion for a long time and it’s not for a belt. And you think if I pull off an upset against Anderson Silva, it’s not going to be as sweet because it’s not for a belt? Hell no. It’s going to be the greatest moment of my life.

Pretty sure Forrest felt the same when he was getting his head dribbled around the cage while punching air.

BshMstr - Bonnar was retired?!?

He said on a UFC post-fight show on FUEL that he basically was leaving the sport unless he was given a big name like "Rampage" or if he could coach TUF with Forrest.

 

He didn't exactly say he was retiring, but hintly strongly towards it; So much so, that his colleagues thanked him for his years in the sport.

 

I'm a Silva fan, but good for Bonnar.  He deserves this fight, win or lose.

Wow....now this fight makes more sense. Dana's always said he'd take care of Griffin and Bonnar, so i guess he gave him a great fight to go out on.

He can take Silva down and put him in a bad spot. Lutter did.

Just found the video of what I referred to earlier.

It is from about 3 months back. Go to about 4:40 into the video.

The movie Bonnar is in?

A remake of 'The Accused'.

Just need a pinball machine placed inside the Octagon. Phone Post
