UFC 153 video preview: Anderson Silva is 'amazing'

Anderson Silva puts his legacy on the line by moving up in weight to battle Stephan Bonnar at the UFC 153 pay-per-view (PPV) on Oct. 13 in Rio. Can "The Spider" continue his "amazing" run?

Mixed martial arts (MMA) fans debate a lot of topics.

Once thing that isn't up for debate, however, is just how "amazing" Anderson Silva has been throughout his run as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion. 32-4 overall, "The Spider" has won 16 fights in a row and hasn't lost inside the Octagon.


Hoping to change all that is longtime light heavyweight veteran Stephan Bonnar, who joins his Brazilian foe for a short-notice dance at the upcoming UFC 153 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Oct. 13, 2012 from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Can "The American Psycho" shock the world?

I don't think anyone -- including the UFC -- gives him a legitimate shot, based on the above video. Or maybe they're just hyping up the greatest of all time so that a Bonnar upset will seem even more monumental. I think at -1300, anything but a total massacre would be seen as a disappointment for "Spider" fans.
