Stephan Bonnar: “…I want to give the fans a good one.”

“Everyone out there please harass Dana White on Twitter to let me and Forrest coach the next season (of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’),” Bonnar told Radio ( “If he does that, I can guarantee a barn-burning slugfest.
“I won’t go for any takedowns. I won’t block any punches. I’ll just be moving forward. I’m serious I would just go and slug it out and try to top our first one. What the hell do I have to lose? I want to give the fans a good one.”

Bonnar and Griffin’s first battle royal in April 2005 at the conclusion of the first season of “TUF” has been voted the greatest fight in UFC history. White often refers to the slugfest as “the most important fight in UFC history” because it took place as part of the first UFC fight card to air live on national television and helped the promotion score its landmark deal with Spike TV.

While Bonnar lost the bout by a narrow decision – as well as the rematch a year later – he believes a trilogy fight with his buddy could once again be a ratings boon for new television partner FOX™.

“If we got to be coaches, I would be so thankful,” he said. “Just bringing the whole thing full circle to FOX, I would really be honored.”
