In the two plus years since Stephan Bonnar cannonballed into the Ultimate Fighting Championship pool, the affable Indianan has endured more turmoil than many of his peers will experience in their entire careers. From the death of his longtime mentor, Carlson Gracie, in February 2006 to his well-publicized positive test for an anabolic steroid six months later, Bonnar has exhausted much of the momentum he gathered in his historic bout with Forrest Griffin on the season one finale of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

Ever so quietly regaining his foothold in the mixed martial arts world, Bonnar (10-4, 4-3 UFC) walks back into the pay-per-view limelight against former training partner Eric Schafer at UFC 77 “Hostile Territory” on Saturday at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. Bonnar remains cordial with Schafer and admits the familiarity that exists between them adds an awkward dimension to their fight ........................
