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

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.
