UFC 139 results: Stephan Bonnar defeats Kyle Kingsbury by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-25, 30-27)
Stephan Bonnar will forever be associated with the UFC's biggest early moment of growth. In the finale of the first season of The Ultimate Fighter, Bonnar clashed with Forrest Griffin in an incredible war that saw a huge raise in viewership over it's 15 minutes due to the "call tree effect" with friends calling friends and telling them to tune in. Bonnar would come up on the losing end but the fight was so good and so important to the promotion that Dana White has gone on record as saying Bonnar will always have a job with the UFC.
After his TUF stint the success was mixed with wins over lesser competition but losses to men like Rashad Evans, Forrest Griffin (again), Jon Jones, Mark Coleman and Krzysztof Soszynski.
