I think there's a decent chance of that happening.

One thing seems all but certain. Bonnar will be on Silva like stink on shit. And he must know that he can't stand and trade the whole fight, so I think you're right, he'll try to drag him down to the ground where he can better use his size. And Bonnar's ground game isn't spectacular, but he's hardly a noob.

If Anderson takes a while to get into his groove and Bonnar gets confident and starts thinking he can really do it, this could turn into a very interesting fight. A third round with a gassed Bonnar up on points and trying to contain a desperate Anderson could be extremely dramatic.

Or, if Anderson obliterates him in 90 seconds, I woud find that worthwhile as well. Say what you want about Bonnar's skill or dedication, but nobody strolls over the top of him. Jon Jones landed all his best shots and Bonnar went nowhere. In fact he came back and arguably won the 3rd round. If Anderson wipes the floor with Bonnar, that will only be yet another statement about Anderson's ability, not a case of Bonnar being found out.
