After getting embarrassed by Anderson Silva at UFC 153, recently retired former light heavyweight Stephan Bonnar surely didn't bow out of the UFC on a glorious note.
Bonnar left his mark on the company in his debut when he locked horns with fellow The Ultimate Fighter Season 1 cast mate Forrest Griffin in a back-and-forth bloodbath at the finale of TUF 1 in April 2005.
With the company's future in limbo, Bonnar and Griffin engaged in an epic clash that UFC president Dana White often refers to as the most important match in company history.
White claims that a group of his confidants met with Spike TV executives the night of the fight in an alley behind the Thomas & Mack Center regarding the company's future. Roughly a month later, Spike TV and the UFC unveiled a two-year deal that would produce two new seasons of TUF, six live fight cards and 26 episodes of UFC Unleashed.
Although the UFC shelled out $10 million of its own money to create the first season of TUF, the company's financial situation radically changed following the first Bonnar vs. Griffin matchup.
He never fought for a title and barely compiled a winning record (8-7). Because of one extraordinarily fascinating fight that forever changed the UFC, The American Psycho deserves a lifetime contract.
