Move over, Matt Serra. There's a bigger underdog in town.

Early lines on UFC 153's new main event, which features a light-heavyweight non-title bout between middleweight champ Anderson Silva and Stephan Bonnar, are lopsided in Silva's favor.

Silva is a more than 13-to-1 favorite and has up to a 93 percent chance of winning the fight, according to BestFightOdds.com, a site that features betting lines from several online bookmakers.

At one point, Serra was a +700 underdog when he fought Georges St-Pierre for the title at UFC 69. The winner of "The Ultimate Fighter 4" wound up scoring the biggest upset in UFC history when he unseated the champ.

Bonnar, who has won his past three fights but recently had signaled his imminent retirement, is up to a +850 underdog on several sites. That means he has an approximately 10 percent chance of winning the fight.

Poor Bonnar. So much respect for him now, more than ever before. What a wicked dude, steps up to the plate like a lamb to the slaughter. Jon Jones just got shown up big time.

I don't know why he is such a huge Dog...not that I think he will win but he's capable of taking Silva down or banging with him for short exchanges or in tight.

Damn right he did, and rightfully so. He had a far better chance then Bonnar does and Bonnar is making fun of himself. I fucking LOVE that dudes sense of humor. He's game for whatever and that's why he's a legend (that and the fact that him and Forrest showed the world what heart is).

Mad props Mr. Bonnar, Mad props

lol, I wouldn't give him a 10% chance. He has a good sense of humour about it, at least.

Bonnar is a STUD, he will fight like a true warrior to the bitter end......

We all know he won't cry like a little baby and run (really slow) out of the building like he just got assaulted on the playground like what's his name......

War Bonnar

There are people out there that HATE Bonnar(Fleek) and I never understood it. His sense of humor is great, he makes fun of himself so he's clearly not an ego-maniac, and he's entertaining as hell to watch fight more often than not. I love the guy and I really hope he has a good showing against Silva even if a win is pretty much out of the question.

I hate him as an announcer because he sounds absolutely blazed out of his gourd, but as a person and a fighter I like him. Don't really know how anyone couldn't
Either way, I'm putting at least 10$ on Bonnar, I think it's well worth the risk.

Ive always had a dislike for him because he always sounds crazy as shit and never seemed to evolve past a Vale Tudo style.

After he did this though, shit, who couldnt like him? I give him more than a buster douglass 30-1 but absolutely have respect now. Hopefully he exits career on a tv fight he can win so we can give him a solid goodbye.

Bonnar is huge and has a way better chin than Forrest Griffin. I think he could pull a decision out of his ass in this one. Is it a five round fight? Because if so maybe not
