Bonnar had him in a lot of danger. Give the guy some credit. He put on a better performance than 90% of Silva's opponents. Just because he missed a flashy kick doesn't mean he went out there and got embarrassed.
You must have watched the fight really high or drunk or both. At no plint was Silva in danger, nor did he eat any big shots...silva absolutely crowned him..how could you not think everything he did was intentional? He willingly placed his back against the cage and put his arms down to glad Bonnar/fuck with his head.
Was it Incrediably risky and possibly foolish? Yes, but that's what Silva does in fights. Saying Bonnar did better than 90% of silvas opponents is like saying Rampage did better a saints Jones than 90% of his opponents simply because Jones didn't immediately finish him.
