"I’ve never been kneed like that," he said. "I couldn’t breathe at all. I couldn’t move. i was just crippled, waiting for my body to be able to get some air. It felt like an eternity and the ref stepped it. When I saw the fight, I was like, 'Whoa, that was pretty quick.' It felt like I was trying to breathe longer than that."

In his 11-year career, it marked the first time that Bonnar was stopped on anything other than cuts. And even though he was on the receiving end of it, Bonnar tipped his cap to the pound-for-pound king.

"The way he placed that knee and timed it, the little trip and push, the whole setup and transition, yeah, there’s a part of me that is in awe of him," he said.

"I’m definitely happy," he said. "I'm so thankful they gave me that fight. I'm apologetic that I didn’t do better but whatever. I've got to get over that. But I’m happy. I have nothing to be ashamed of. Losing sucks and it's hard to swallow. I went in there with Anderson and followed my game plan and did what I had to do. That’s MMA. One little mistake, one little opening is all it takes. With a guy like Anderson Silva, that’s all he needs. He landed a perfect knee at a perfect time, and got the victory. Hats off to Anderson. I can honestly say I never had a fight where I look back and said I choked or didn't come to fight or I wasn't prepared. Even through terrible injuries and fighting sick, I still sucked it up and did my best. I have nothing to be ashamed of."

Bonnar is a true warrior. There is not one ounce of quit in that guy. Always have had respect for him. And he knows hes never been stopped like that before. When you go as long as he has without being knocked out you have no choice but to bow down to the man that makes it happen. Not only made it happen but did it so easily.

He can be proud to say it took someone like Anderson to put him on the canvas.
