Sonnen, who had two battles with Silva inside the Octagon, was asked to give his prediction for the main event fight. The bout takes place at light heavyweight, so Silva's middleweight title will not be on the line.
"I am going to take Stephan Bonnar," Sonnen said. "I think he does a lot well, but I think Silva looks out of shape and (Bonnar) looks very confident."
Sonnen's broadcast partner, Urijah Faber, was asked the same question, saying, "Anderson Silva is the guy. He has proven his abilities, he is going to win."
