Obviously not a great match up, but at least Silva and Bonner are stepping up to the plate. Considering it's in Rio, I'm sure the UFC and Brazilian fans are just happy Anderson is fighting.
After Dana announced Shogun vs. Vera as a number one contenders match, Sonnen almost getting a shot at Jones' title at 205, only to have another older Middleweight like Vitor get the chance, I'm not too surprised by this decision.
They probably should have just booked Silva-Sonnen 3 at 205 for this event.
