UFC 153 Odds and Betting Lines: Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar
Despite a couple of injuries to two of Ultimate Fighting Championship’s biggest stars, fans can still expect nothing but pure mayhem in Brazil when the Ultimate Fighting Championship stages UFC 153 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro this October 13, 2012.
Saddled by injuries, Jose Aldo and Quinton Jackson will no longer be part of UFC 153’s fight card. These developments resulted in some changes to the event’s schedule among which is a new main event featuring no other than the sport’s pound-for-pound king Anderson Silva going up against Stephan Bonnar in a non-title three-round fight.
Additionally, Glover Teixeira will now be scheduled to brawl with a new fighter, Brazilian Fabio Maldonado in the co-main event after Quinton Jackson withdrew. Moreover, UFC president Dana White also announced the inclusion of a fight between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Dave Herman in the heavyweight division.BET ON SPORTS

Betting for Anderson Silva in UFC 153
It was six years ago when Anderson Silva last suffered a loss. From then on, Silva has racked up an astounding 16 consecutive wins including his most recent against nemesis Chael Sonnen. Along the way, he has also captured the UFC middleweight title and defended it ten times – the most in UFC history. Though his bout against Stephan Bonnar is a non-title fight and is to be fought at the light heavyweight division, he is still perceived as the heavy favorite in the betting lines. In his career, Silva has ventured into the light heavyweight division only twice but won in both via knockouts against James Irvin and Forrest Griffin. Silva carries a scary 30-4 record and his last three fights all have ended in knockouts. Bet on Anderson Silva at Top Bet sportsbook once odds are released.
Betting for Stephan Bonnar in UFC 153
Riding a three-fight winning streak, Stephan Bonnar has himself set on nailing number four against Anderson Silva. Though many found this match-up as one-sided in favor of Silva, Bonnar knows he can give the pound-for-pound king a tough fight. The one advantage Bonnar clearly has over Silva is size; Silva stands two inches shorter than Bonnar’s 6’2” frame. Bonnar’s relentless push-forward style could prove to be effective against Silva who had seen same trouble during his first fight with Chael Sonnen. He has not been knocked out in his career showing his durability and proving that he is a very tough customer inside the octagon. Bonner owns a 17-7 record and has recorded wins over the likes of Keith Jardine and Krzysztof Soszynski.
