That's what I think Bonnar should do as well. First two rounds, drag Anderson to the ground. Gain top control. Fitch him as much as possible. Rough him up Sonnen-style with punches and short elbows. Use the size and strength advantage. Tire him out with the weight advantage. Avoid engaging with him on the feet. Dive on a limb if he leaves one out. That's the first two rounds.

Third round, try to survive for 5 minutes.

Always that chance. But barring freak injury, I still think there's a path to victory for Bonnar. It's just that it's a very narrow path, twisting and full of treacherous rocks, with a terrible fall on both sides.
