Stephan Bonnar Says He Never Dreamed Of Being In The UFC “Hall of Fame”

UFC light heavyweight veteran, Stephan Bonnar gave his thoughts on the recent news that he is being inducted into the UFC “Hall of Fame”, stating he had never dreamed it would ever happen to him, especially after his recent problems with banned substances.

Bonnar, speaking via Inside MMA said:

“I never even dreamed [of being in the Hall of Fame]. I did this as a hobby, I got picked for the show and just that was enough for me — I could have died happy there. If they want to put me in the Hall of Fame then like, my god what an honor. I never really expected it. Just what an honor.”

UFC President Dana White told a group of reporters last month that Bonnar would be inducted, it was confirmed at a recent news conference for UFC 160 which takes place ahead of UFC 162 in July.
