UFC 153 Preview: Staff Picks for Silva vs. Bonnar Main Card

When Stephan Bonnar steps in the cage against Anderson Silva in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday night, he'll do so as one of the most historic underdogs in the history of mixed martial arts.

That's the draw of this fight, in its own unique way. Few people in the world give Bonnar much of a chance, not because he's a terrible fighter, but because the man he's facing is the greatest fighter in the history of the sport who has already proven that a size disadvantage against light heavyweights doesn't faze him a bit. 

But what happens if Bonnar does the impossible? Can you imagine? All of those comparisons about this being the UFC's version of Rocky would come to fruition.

But enough about the main event. From top to bottom, the UFC 153 pay-per-view card is one of the more stacked events of the year. Not in terms of superstar power, but in terms of intriguing fights featuring athletes with the potential to go a long way in the sport.

The Caged In staff is here to break down the fights. Let's get started.
