4) Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar
As if the UFC was trying to ruin both legacies of The Ultimate Fighter Season 1 duo, Stephan Bonnar was thrown into the lion’s den just three years after Forrest Griffin was.
Unfortunately, Bonnar did not fair any better than Griffin did opposite then UFC middleweight champion and pound-for-pound best fighter ever Anderson Silva. In just one round, “The Spider” made the Octagon look like The Matrix.
He dodged, ducked, and defused Bonnar’s best offensive attacks. After letting the light heavyweight contender punch him in the face along the cage as if a man was playing with his infant son, Silva decided to launch a flying knee to Bonnar’s sternum to end the fight.
It was the first time in Bonnar’s career that he was finished outside of doctor’s stoppage and a 205-pound clash that was over before it even started.
