Stephan Bonnar Vs. Forrest Griffin 3? Bonnar Still Campaigning For TUF Coaching Slot

Do you want to see a rematch between Stephan Bonnar and Forrest Griffin?

Would you be interested in a rematch of one of the best and most important fights in UFC and MMA history? Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar locked horns 7 years ago, and it changed the landscape of Mixed Martial Arts. Bonnar wants to not only recreate this, but he also wants to one-up that.

The American Psycho again campaigned hard for a TUF coaching slot against Griffin, and he did it during the latest episode of Spike TV's MMA Uncensored.

Check out as Bonnar makes his case after the jump.

Quotes via MMA Mania:

"Well I'm on a crusade to be coaches [for TUF 16]. It only makes sense that something comes full circle and hey, if [me and Forrest Griffin] are coaches, I guarantee the fight will outdo the first one and on top of that, Forrest is a very funny guy, but I'll out-funny him. So please everybody, harass Dana White. Dana listen to the fans, let's make this happen. Don't leave him alone."

"I'm no dummy. I've got a couple more fights in me. I'm insecure. I want to outdo that first fight with Forrest. I think I earned it. I'm on a nice roll. Give me some of them big names. Let me go out in a blaze of glory. That's all I want to do."

Another bout against Griffin will likely not even come close to their first encounter, but I don't see any reason why they shouldn't get that TUF coaching gig. Both guys are charismatic, It doesn't hold up a championship bout during the show, and it's certainly a more interesting rematch than Griffin's next fight at UFC 148.
