Anderson Silva is a Heavy Favorite to Beat Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153

| by

Stephan Bonnar is currently remembered for his epic battle with Forrest Griffin in the first season of The Ultimate Fighter. However, Bonnar has a chance to change his history when he meets Anderson Silva.

"The American Psycho" will meet "The Spider" in the main event of UFC 153: Silva vs. Bonnar. The UFC put the bout together after an injury knocked UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo from a planned meeting with Frankie Edgar.

"What!! I'm only a 13 to 1 underdog vs. Anderson?" Bonnar posted. "I must be better than I thought."

Bonnar (14-7) has won three straight, but Silva will be a tremendous jump in competition. Bonnar has faced the likes of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and former champs Rashad Evans and Lyoto Machida, along with a second encounter with Griffin. He is winless in those matches.
