Anderson Silva

PREDICTION

It's a desperately thrown-together fight that plays almost entirely to Anderson Silva's strengths. Stephan Bonnar has no quit in him, but he doesn't have the defense in his stand-up to make Silva miss. He also lacks a ton of knockout power, and Silva has a good chin anyway.

SILVA, FIRST-ROUND KNOCKOUT.
