Silva On Bonnar: "I Will Have More Speed, More Agility Than Him, But I Don't Know About The Power"
While it seems few are giving journeyman Bonnar much of a chance against the seemingly unstoppable Silva, "The Spider" holds his opponent in high regard.
“Stephan Bonnar is a great fighter; his story is a big part of the UFC," Silva said during Wednesday's UFC 153 open workouts. "He’s big, big guy but I feel good not to have to cut weight to middleweight. For me, it is very important to retire undefeated, and I want to retire undefeated in the UFC. This is a tricky night for me Saturday. He has good BJJ and brings the fight. If I have the chance, I will finish this fight in one round. Stephan Bonnar always fights so hard. I will have more speed, more agility than him, but I don’t know about the power. So if I see the chance, I will finish this quickly.”
