As mentioned in the previous slide, Bonnar poses several problems for Silva.
He is tough to finish, can take a punch, is big and has an excellent ground game.
Bonnar's odds of winning go up exponentially should he be able to take Silva to the ground. He is capable of doing just that.
Also, with only four-ounce gloves on their fists, all it takes is one clean shot. Ask GSP.
Upsets happen in MMA all the time, but they do not happen against Silva. Bonnar has a small chance to pull this off and you should not miss it just in case he capitalizes and shocks the world.
The number one reason you cannot miss this fight is because Anderson Silva is fighting.
If you have watched every single Silva fight in the UFC you have only watched him fight 15 times. That is a small number. We do not get the opportunity to see greatness at this level very often, and getting one more Silva fight in 2012 is fantastic.
