UFC 116: Stephan Bonnar likes winning ugly with his big nutsack


"I like winning ugly, and boy, do I look ugly right now.... I didn't want the fight to get stopped. I didn't want anyone taking this fight away from me. I just kept going for it. [The cuts] got me worried. The plan was to really make it a dog fight and push the pace. You know me, the more I bleed, the more it brings the best out of me. Typical Bonnar.... I'm not the best athlete, but I got a big heart and a big nutsack."

-- The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) alum, Stephan Bonnar, is all smiles and jokes after a huge win last night against Krzysztof Soszynski at UFC 116, which once again demonstrated his sheer will to win no matter how much blood he has to spill. The "American Psycho" lost to the "Polish Experiment" his last time out at UFC 112 thanks to a grizzly cut caused by an illegal (albeit accidental) head butt. So when holes started to once again open up inside the Octagon, Bonnar smelled the blood (his own) and went for the finish in the second round. It was an exciting back-and-forth brawl up until that point, making the victory that much sweeter. It was Bonnar's first win since 2007 (he's been injured, in addition to losing a few fights upon his return) and likely his most important in a very, very long time. It was so good, in fact, that Bonnar described the feeling as "better than sex." We'll take his word for it.
