He has a career he can be proud of, several wins in the UFC and most notably played a major part in MMA breaking through to become as big as it did at one point.

And of course, he fought his ass off every fight and gave 100%.

I wish him good luck with whatever he does.
Yep.

How the **** can you hate Bonnar?

Fan-friendly guy, good personality, massive balls, fights his ass off every time out, always tries to finish fights and keep the crowd happy.

Getting suspended is pretty much the only bad thing you can say about him. How the hell can you be anti-Bonnar? He's always been very realistic about who and what he is.

Summed up perfectly.

Good mid-carder, will have a decent career in broadcasting and still has all his faculties intact. Hope he enjoys his retirement

I could understand not liking him if he was strutting around boasting like he was world class. But he never has. He's always been happy to take the piss out of himself, he knows damned well that he lucked out in a huge way by being in the right spot at the right time. He doesn't act like he's anything more than he is and he'll get into the cage and go toe to toe with anybody, anywhere, anytime. What's not to like?

Not everybody can be a champion. But win or lose, I've never seen a Bonnar fight where the crowd went home bitching that Bonnar didn't try his best to put on a good show for the fans. What more can you really ask of a fighter?

He didn't survive, he curled up into a ball and sobbed through the 2 minute mark of the first round. Hurray...

UFC 153 fighters Stephan Bonnar (15-8 MMA, 8-7 UFC) and Dave Herman (21-5 MMA, 1-3 UFC) each tested positive for banned substances in their post-fight drug screens.

MMAjunkie.com ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ]) today confirmed with Ultimate Fighting Championship officials that all 24 fighters who competed at this past month's UFC 153 event in Brazil were tested, and Bonnar and Herman were the lone two competitors who failed the screen.

Bonnar tested positive for Drostanolone, an anabolic steroid, while Herman's screen was flagged for marijuana metabolites.

UFC 153 took place Oct. 13 at Rio de Janeiro's HSBC Arena. Anderson Silva defeated Bonnar in the evening's headliner while Herman was submitted by Antonio Rodrgio Nogueira in the co-main event.

With the lack of an athletic commission to govern the event, UFC officials took the role of overseeing the fight card. UFC exec Marc Ratner said the company has yet to issue a suspension to the fighters but is expected to do so sometime next week.

Bonnar earlier this week announced his retirement. His first positive test and subsequent suspension came after UFC 62, at which he dropped a unanimous decision loss to Forrest Griffin in their rematch. At that event, the Las Vegas-based Bonnar tested positive for a Boldenone metabolite that resulted from anabolic-steroid use.

Following the suspension, Bonnar owned up to the infraction, saying he was trying to speed up the rehab of an injured elbow in time for the Griffin fight. He was suspended for nine months by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and fined $5,000.

After a three-fight losing skid that included unanimous decision losses to eventual light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman, Bonnar bounced back in 2010 with a second-round TKO win over Krzysztof Soszynski, then dominant unanimous decision wins over Igor Pokrajac and Kyle Kingsbury.

After a layoff of nearly a year, he got the chance of his career when he was asked to face Silva in Brazil in a light heavyweight bout on just a month's notice. Bonnar came out swinging, but eventually succumbed to a Silva knee to the midsection and follow-up punches on the ground in the first round. It was the first time he had been stopped, not counting two stoppages from cuts.

"Huge thanks to every UFC fan out there!" the Carlson Gracie-trained Bonnar stated on Facebook, announcing his retirement. "All I ever wanted was to bring ya'll some fun...hope u were entertained. Peace, love, & violence!"

Earlier this week, Bonnar's wife gave birth to the couple's first child.

Drostanolone is an anabolic steroid in the dihydrotestosterone family. Earlier this year, former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal tested positive for the same substance.

For Herman, the failed test is also his second offense. The heavyweight was in 2011 scratched from a planned matchup with Mike Russow when he failed a pre-fight drug screen issued by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. Herman later revealed marijuana was the offending substance, though he denied using the drug.

The remaining 22 fighters on the card all tested negative for drugs of abuse (such as marijuana and cocaine), as well as anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancers.

Shocking.

Also lol at Herman testing positive for marijuana again. I wonder if he will blame second hand smoke again. Even though it seemed like he may have legitimately been fighting while high.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Bonnar fight Griffin again one day. There will always be a draw for that fight.
