Video: Stephan Bonnar 'trains' for UFC 153 bout against Anderson Silva

Well it's good to see Stephan Bonnar is taking his upcoming UFC 153 main event against Anderson Silva seriously.

"The American Psycho" stepped up in a big way this past week, coming out of semi-retirement to take on Silva, the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world on just one month's notice.

And he'll be doing it on Silva's home turf in Rio de Janeira, Brazil.

Silva is widely regarded as one of the most elusive fighters in the world with some of the best head movement and reflexes ever utilized in mixed martial arts. Perhaps Bonnar's unconventional training tactics will help give him an edge.

While Bonnar is a solid UFC Light Heavyweight, he's never really challenged as an elite member of the division. That's why it wasn't a big surprise when Silva opened as a -1350 favorite. To his credit, Bonnar has stayed light hearted, even joking that he must be better than he thought on Twitter after "only opening as a 13-1 underdog."

What's your take on the original Ultimate Fighter (TUF) finalist's approach to his bout against Silva?
