I think in 6 months to a year he will be a force to contend with

and I guess with that statement, Randy Couture is a senior citizen in your opinion?

This is a phenominal move by Stephan who has always been a good fighter, he has needed a move ever since his mentor died. This is going to give Bonnar the essientals that he needs to become a complete fighter.

I think Bonnar could have a shot at being in the top 7 in that division and possibly sooner or later and he fights the way he did against Mike Nickels with that fire and that passion to fight, that division could be in trouble.

I want to see a Evans/Bonnar II because I think Stephan would beat Evans now.

I think Bonnar can definately contend, in fact i thought he would have been in a great position to make a run had he been more convincing vs. Jardine and then pulled it out against Rashad. If he were to get a matchup with the loser of Rashad-Tito II he could be back in the picture quickly. All this depends on his being able to overcome a superior wrestler...and who better to help with that than.....Randy Couture. Smart move

The reason its too late, IMO is because he could have gotton with a good team right after he got out of TUF. He waited a long time. Thats all.

I don't see Bonnar ever being a force to contend with in the light heavy weight division.
