Silva vs Bonnar reminds me a lot of the Muhammad Ali vs Chuck Wepner fight: a dominant champion taking on an opponent most noted for his ability to take a beating. Pretty much a foregone conclusion, but the "What if?" factor is high. I sort of doubt Bonnar will do much better than the Bayonne Bleeder, but it should be a fun fight anyway.

Chuck knocked Ali down at least

The only way this match could have a bigger underdog is to replace Bonnar with John Cena™. John Cena™ has had to Overcome the Odds™ in every match he's ever been in. Fortunately, John Cena won over the WWE Universe™ with Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect™, and he'll win the Ultimate Fighting Championship Mixed Martial Rules championship, where you can only win by knockout or submission. And there's a boot, RIGHT TO THE SKULL, of The Spider. How much more punishment can he take?

3 round fight, I don't think Bonnar is as big an underdog as the odds say. He's 2 takedowns from shocking people.

He'd take a better for 24 minuets and hit an Attitude Adjustment at the end for the TKO.

Always a possibility the champ can get caught, but I'm wondering if at the end of the night Bonnar more closely resembles :

You sure it's a three-rounder? If so, that sucks. I don't think it's so much Bonnar's skill set that worries people as much as it is he fact that he's coming out of retirement to fight "the greatest MMA fighter of all time." Anderson fighting at 205 may moderate that advantage, but it also makes his speed and strikimg technique advantage more pronounced. The other thing is that odds are not the odds that such and such person is going to win/lose the fight, but ratios of how much the house is willing to pay people for either way the fight plays out. But, I'm sure you already know that.

I have the facebook feed routed to my TV, and I can't get over how crappy the picture is compared to the one provided by a third-rate MMA promotion last night. The UFC can do better.

99% sure. Bonnar's odds have been all over the damn place over the past 3 weeks. Went to +1300 at one time, now down to +700.

I think you're right about the two takedowns but, considering the circumstances of the fight (Anderson out of weight class, Bonnar out of retirement), I wonder if they have some sort of "gentlemen's agreement" to "put on a a show" and keep it standing. Also, isn't this a fill-in for a fight that was canceled? I can't keep all these cards/injuries straight.

Yeah. Aldo/Edgar.

I don't think Bonnar is making any agreements like that, given the upside of pulling off the upset and it being a 3-rounder.

Cane gonna take the TKO here.

HDMI cable is nice and solid. I changed from Best Available to 3000kbps on the feed and it improved a little. The 720p feed from last night was better.
