Forrest Griffin Has Confidence In Stephan Bonnar To Perform Well At UFC 153

Forrest Griffin will forever be linked with Stephan Bonnar.

The two helped put the UFC on the map during their thrilling battle for the first-ever Ultimate Fighter crown.

Now, as Bonnar prepares to face Anderson Silva this Saturday night at UFC 153, Griffin has complete confidence that “The American Psycho” can hang with “The Spider.”

“I actually think Stephan’s going to surprise some people,” said Griffin, during an interview with MMA Fight Corner. “I don’t know if he’ll win, but he’ll do well.”

Griffin owns a pair of victories over Bonnar during their time in the UFC. Also, Griffin was inside the Octagon with Silva once, falling by first round defeat. His advice for Bonnar was simple:

“Don’t do anything I did. Whatever I did, do the opposite.”
