It can't be Bonnar. I'd like for it to be him, but it's not realistic unless they fought at Franklin-weight(195), and even then I don't love Bonnar's chances of making weight. I have no idea who they are thinking of putting him in there with at this point, and I'm interested to see what shakes out here.
I think I just posted this in another thread yesterday but Bonnar said in the UFC 101 Post Fight Show (after his 3rd loss in a row at LHW) that he was dropping to Middleweight but the UFC wanted him to rematch Kryzstof instead.
Yeah it's been 2 years and 2 fights since the comments but if he was prepared and confident he could do it then, age 34 vs. 32 shouldn't make too big of a difference. He definitely looks too big to make the cut but if he and is camp are confident they can do it and were prepared to that recently I'd have to think that he probably could make it. As far as the toll it might take on him, I'm not going to get into that part of it.
