(I’m not going to lie to you Stephan, that’s probably going to leave a mark.)
Though he appeared to be headed for a loss anyway, Stephan Bonnar is not happy with the way his fight against Krzysztof Soszynski ended at UFC 110, and it’s hard to blame him. After an accidental headbutt caused a nauseating cut on his forehead which lathered the mat with blood, the fight was stopped and K-Sos was awarded the TKO victory with just minutes left in the fight. Ideally, a fight that’s stopped due to a headbutt should go to the scorecards rather than being declared a loss for the fighter who was just fouled, but hey, what do you expect in Australia? No place that produced Hugh Jackman and Errol Flynn is going to play by your silly rules.
But the best part about this story – or the worst part, if you’re Bonnar – is that he now has a scar on his forehead shaped oddly like a ‘K.’ As in, the first letter of K-Sos’s name. It’s like he was branded by his enemy in defeat. From now until the day he dies, when his body will presumably be blasted into space because, hell, that’s what we do with everything in the future, at least in my imagination, he will bear the mark of K-Sos.
And yet, because Bonnar is not the type of guy to give up just because it’s probably the smart thing to do, he wants another go-round with the sharp-skulled K-Sos. Soszynski says he’s up for it "if the UFC wants it and the fans want it." I guess this is where we turn it over to you. Any interest in Bonnar/K-Sos II? If so, what are the odds that Bonnar can somehow even the score by carving an ‘S’ into K-Sos’s head? Follow-up question: Do you think he should opt for the ‘B’ instead, just to make it clear that the ‘S’ doesn’t stand for Soszynski? Short of a custom made signet ring that he sneaks into the Octagon, how would he even accomplish that?
