Stephan Bonnar tweeted a pic of himself training with former WWE superstar Dave Bautista and and TUF 1 alum Alex Schoenauer. Bautista admitted on MMA Uncensored last week that Bonnar dropped him in training, which was the first time that had ever happened to him. Bautista will make his MMA debut next month.
The UFC announced this morning that an injury to Stephan Bonnar has forced him out of his UFC on Versus 5 bout with Karlos Vemola. In Bonnar's place, the UFC has signed Brazilian submission specialist, Ronny Markes (11-1), to face Vemola in August. Markes ranked as the #10 light heavyweight on BloodyElbow.com's world scouting report. The Nova Uniao Kimura team member most recently won a decision against Paulo Filho in April.
