Stephan Bonnar: ‘People aren’t expecting much out of me’

At UFC 153 this weekend, Stephan Bonnar will get a chance to shock the world. Well, the portion of the world who cares about MMA, anyway. If he manages a win against Anderson Silva, the world's best fighter, he will pull off the biggest upset in MMA history. Heck, it will be a surprise if he lasts all three rounds against Silva.

In Bonnar's eyes, this puts him in a great position. No one thinks he will win, so he can't lose.

"People aren't expecting much out of me. It's like, no stress. No pressure. It's really a good place to be," Bonnar said. "It doesn't matter if I'm the undercard or the main event, and I'm going to try to steal the show."
