Dana White helps Stephan Bonnar plan UFC 153 escape from Brazil

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Dana White is giving Stephan Bonnar keys to the corporate jet in case he needs to make a hasty exit after his UFC 153 main event fight against pound-for-pound king and hometown hero Anderson Silva. Find out the real reason why "The American Psycho" wants to get the heck out of Brazil as soon as it's humanly possible.

Is Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White predicting a massive upset?

The Las Vegas fight boss is gassing up his private jet and handing Stephan Bonnar the keys, just in case he needs to make a hasty exit from the HSBC Arena this Saturday night (Oct. 13, 2012) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, after his main event showdown against hometown hero and pound-for-pound king Anderson Silva.

But it has nothing to do with winning or losing.

Instead, "The American Psycho" will rush home to be by his wife's side. As TMZ reports, she's expected to have a baby by the end of the month. Sure, he's still got time, but childbirth is just like the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA), anything can happen.

Will that hold true on fight night?

Despite ruling the roost at 185 pounds for what seems like forever, "The Spider" has made a few trips north to test his might against some of the top dogs at light heavyweight. Most notably, former division champion Forrest Griffin, who was knocked silly in their UFC 101 encounter back in late 2009.

Bonnar will now try to finish what his old TUF battle buddy started.

Maybe this pre-fight "daddy" angle is a way to get inside Silva's head? Perhaps instill a sense of pity when the cage door closes, allowing the underdog to capitalize on the champion's hesitation and bring one home for his bouncing baby boy (or girl)?

Stranger things have happened.
