[VIDEO] The UFC’s Totally Honest Hype Trailer for UFC 153: Silva vs. Bonnar

I just watched the first official trailer for UFC 153: Silva vs. Bonnar and I’m stoked, Nation. Not because the brief montage of fight film, music and narration fooled me into thinking that Stephan Bonnar somehow isn’t a gigantic underdog against Anderson Silva, but rather because the trailer is so honest about his chances and what we’re likely to see. It’s a nice change of pace.

Check it out above and see what I mean. After injuries jacked up UFC 153′s main event twice as well as the originally scheduled co-main, the UFC did the best they could by getting the world’s best fighter on the card and throwing a fearless, aggressive, entertaining fighter at him. The trailer serves as a reflection of this, as it basically tell fans, “Look, Anderson Silva is probably going to knock Bonnar out and we all know whenever ‘The Spider’ does that it’s hella exciting. But if somehow that doesn’t happen, and Bonnar wins, well that would be as big of an upset as we’ve ever seen, and dang, wouldn’t that be exciting, too? Please watch us. It’s been a rough year.”

Listen, I’m a Pride FC head, so I don’t need much convincing to get into crazy cool freak show match ups. In fact, I spend hours every Sunday morning scouring the Interwebs for tapes of Fedor fighting Zulu Jr.Cro Cop kicking Dos Caras’ mask off, and things of that nature, so you’re darn tooting I’ll watch Silva challenge himself at a higher weight class against a guy who’s beaten, barely lost to, or at least survived against the best the light heavyweight division has offered him over the last seven years.

I know “The American Pyscho” is just a nick name, but there really is something off about that Stephan Bonnar character. He’s a smart, educated guy that doesn’t mind throwing both of those things out the window in an instant for the sake of a good scrap. Blood doesn’t faze him and he may think that he’s a Samurai. Put it this way, here in Chicago we’re pretty certain that the Honey Badger stopped giving a fuck after rooming with Bonnar at Purdue University freshman year.

@ Elias - I think this may be the first time I have seen you use a naughty word! Either you're really cranked up about this or this place is starting to rub off on you :)

Don't ever let anybody around here rub off on you! That's a sure way to contract the hivs!

Why is Anderson fighting bonnar , the guy fights once every 2 years don't get me wrong Anderson is rank, but come on . Does the word Chris Weidmen ring a bell thats who he should b fighting. I think Anderson should b fighting some real competion. It's going to b like chad Mendez vs Cody mckenzie.

When it says one of two things could happen it implies that there could not be a historic upset via spectacular knockout, and that Anderson couldn't win via submission.

Yea, I really should of taken an easier bet that I would get a tattoo or cut the tip of a finger off.

If Bonnar wins i'll say something nice about Jon Jones.

Stephan Bonnar has never been finished by (T)KO or submission. His only stoppage losses are by cuts.

Just sayin'.
ronburgundy- September 26, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Tune in to see the Brazilian crowd yell at all the Americans to go die. It'll be great!
