RIO DE JANEIRO - Neither size nor toughness could save Stephan Bonnar from Anderson Silva.

Anderson Silva might be willing to move up in weight to fight Stephan Bonnar, but he won't fight light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

Stephan Bonnar 'roughnecking' Anderson Silva? We've seen worse game plans

Step into the time machine of the UFC's video archives with me for a moment.
Set the dial for June of 2006. There's the 25-year-old kid with the red hair, the face that's still almost like a blank canvas for artists who work exclusively in the medium of scar tissue, the head that makes such a pleasant target only in part because it doesn't mind being thumped on.
He's about to fight the man who will become the greatest middleweight MMA fighter of all time. But it's OK; he has a plan.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Former WWE star Dave "Batista" Bautista didn't get into MMA to prove anything to fans.

Manager: Michael Bisping title shot is good business for UFC, Anderson Silva
September 22, 2012 (00:15) [ Indexed from MMAjunkie
If, for the remainder of his career, champ Anderson Silva wants to fight the big fights, meaning he wants big challenges (and lucrative paydays), he should fight Michael Bisping.
Additionally, if the UFC wants big events (and lucrative pay-per-view numbers), they should book the fight if Bisping beats fellow middleweight standout Brian Stann on Saturday at UFC 152.
Manager Audie Attar, who reps Bisping for Paradigm Sports Management, thinks this is the logical thing to do.
