"Let's be honest, more than likely, Anderson Silva's going to decapitate him. I don't think I'm saying anything too out there with that comment. Who knows? Stephan Bonnar is tough. He'll give it a go. He'll fight. I think Stephan Bonnar is going to do a better job than Forrest Griffin did.... I think from the UFC's perspective it makes perfect sense [Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar]. I think from Anderson Silva's perspective it makes perfect sense. They lost the main event and the co-main event in the space of a day, Brazil's a massive market for the UFC now, it's beyond huge. They're going to put on a good card. The biggest star in mixed martial arts is Anderson Silva, who just happens to be Brazilian. It's perfect for the fans who get to see their hero fighting live in Brazil."

-- Heads are going to roll at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Oct. 13, 2012. Well, a head, and it's going to be the one that is now connected to the spine of Stephan Bonnar, according to Michael Bisping (via MMAFighting.com). "The Count" recently shared his thoughts on the new 205-pound UFC 153 main event between Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar, which was plugged in last-minute when a motorcycle accident forced Jose Aldo out of his 145-pound "super fight" against Frankie Edgar. Thin on available talent and short on time, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) went with an "old school" mixed martial arts (MMA) match up between the current 185-pound champion, Silva, and a game Light Heavyweight on the tail-end of a memorable professional fight career, Bonnar. "The American Psycho" is a huge underdog; in fact, there has probably never been a more lopsided UFC betting line in recent memory. Certainly, not in a main event, which is scheduled for three rounds. No belts will be at stake -- this is, according to UFC President Dana White, just a "fun" fight. And to hear Bisping -- who will take on Brian Stann this weekend at UFC 152 with a potential title shot against "The Spider" at stake -- tell it, it could be a pay-per-view (PPV) snuff film. You buying it, sickos?
