I think that most fighters do back out if they are injured, now that they have some sort of insurance with the UFC they don't need to fight injured.

On that note.... I'm really surprised Dana hasn't reached out to one of his Hall of Famers or Fan Favs to come in to try to save the day.... Silva Vs Bonner? Just not gonna glue this broken card together for him I'm afraid... especially a PPV....
The UFC is putting on alot of cards and the injury bug definitely hit them this summer. But this happened in 2010 also, look at UFC 108. On 4 weeks notice I think the the UFC did ok. Are they great fights, no. But they will probably appease the crowd in Rio to have Anderson and Big Nog fighting.

I am not giving Bonnar any chance of winning this fight, but I think he will bring it. I don't think he has ever been KO'ed or subbed so it could make for a fun fight.

Good point, I totally forgot that they lost Silva/Sonnen earlier this year.

I was reading some posts in other forums and they were upset about these replacement fights. I am not sure what they expected on 4 weeks notice. If they assumed that Anderson would defend the MW title against Weidman or someone, they are crazy. Keep in mind this is different than what was being asked of Jones, he was already fighting that night. Anderson hasn't been training for a fight.

bonnar is a smart fighter ... i don't expect him to win, but i don't expect him to get forrested either ... and he is strong ... he gets on top of silva, he's can definitely lock on a kimura ...
