STEPHAN BONNAR JUST DID WHAT?
It’s being reported that Stephan Bonnar hs signed a multifight deal with Bellator…let me repeat that, Stephan ‘The American Psycho’ Bonnar, one half of probably the most important fight in UFC/MMA history, has signed a multi fight deal with the UFC’s rival Bellator. What The F23K!
In a statement to MMAFighting.com he had this to say:
“I want everyone to know I’m coming out of retirement because it’s time to free the MMA world of the virus that’s known as Tito Ortiz. We’ve been suffering through his boring fights for too many years, and it’s about time that someone beats it out of him once and for all.”
Surprisingly, word is that Dana White gave his blessing for this strangeness.
Stephan Bonnar hasn’t fought in a little over a year, after his destruction at the hands of Anderson Silva, and his failed PED test, his second in the UFC. He will be coming off a suspension, and a day job as a day trader. Scott Coker talked about him fighting the likes of Rampage, Tito, King Mo and or Emmanuel Newton. All fights that I will begrudgingly watch, but most likely not enjoy. At 37, with the layoff, the failed tests, and his day job…what the hell does he really have to offer in the cage? My guess, nothing but faded glory. Yay Bellator, way to step it up so early.
