It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Stephan Bonnar.
“The American Psycho,” whose life after Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has been “unfortunate,” according to promotion president Dana White, was back in the headlines after a recent meltdown at the Henderson Hospital in Las Vegas.
But that doesn’t mean Bonnar is addicted to pain pills.
“Are you fucking kidding me? Let me fucking fracture your lumbar vertebrae and see how you feel two weeks later, and also break your wrist, and also fuck your shoulder up and you’re crutching around on it,” Bonnar told MMA Fighting. “Like, c’mon man. Really, I’m being honest here. ‘Do you have a problem?’ Fuck you. That’s what I’m talking about.”
Bonnar, 44, racked up multiple injuries during his time as a light heavyweight contender for UFC, and it now appears the original “Ultimate Fighter” finalist has only compounded the problem with his freelance work in professional wrestling.
But the hospital booted “The American Psycho” for causing a scene.
“People abuse opiates, so [people] automatically assume anyone in there is faking the pain and milking it for sympathy so they can get some,” Bonnar continued. “Well, that’s not me. I don’t know if you’ve seen me fight all those years? Have I ever look like a pussy, faking stuff? I don’t think so.”
Bonnar (15-9) has not competed since his split-decision loss to Tito Ortiz at Bellator 131.
