There are many fighters in the UFC, very few who have given as much effort as ‘The American Psycho’ Stephan Bonner. His fights are consistently entertaining, and his efforts against Forrest Griffin, Mark Coleman, Krzyztof Soszynski, Rashad Evans, and many others have placed him among the fan favorites in the light heavyweight division.

Two years ago, Bonner was riding a losing streak that saw his stock in the division at an all time low. However, his recent three fight win streak has placed Bonner back in the divisional mix. His latest victory was his most impressive. Although the fight ended in a decision, Bonner dominated up-and coming light heavyweight Kyle Kingsbury. Utilizing his tenacious ground game, set up by strikes, Bonner smothered Kingsbury, almost submitting him on several occasions.

Since his victory at UFC 139 over Kingsbury, speculation had Quinton Jackson as his next opponent. However Jackson has recently been inked to fight in Japan at UFC 144 against Ryan Bader, leaving Bonner in limbo.

Solution:
The perfect fight scenario would be a bought with Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua. Both fighters posses incredible jujitsu, and are equally paired with there boxing skills. Both fighter have tremendous hearts, and their efforts would surely be a fight of the night candidate. Rua, coming off his decision loss to Dan Henderson would be the perfect fit for Stephan Bonner.
