Win or lose, UFC badass Stephan Bonnar is hauling ass back to the U.S. following his bout against Anderson Silva at UFC 153 -- and TMZ has learned, it's all because his pregnant wife's on the verge of a baby-splosion. 

Stephan's wife Andrea tells TMZ, she's due to give birth at the end of the month -- but on the off chance she pops early, Stephan wants to be by her side.

UFC 153 is taking place this weekend in Rio de Janeiro -- so Andrea tells us, Stephan plans to hop a plane as soon as he can after his fight against Silva ... and fly straight back to his wife in Vegas.

But Stephan's not just taking any old plane -- we're told UFC honcho Dana White has offered Stephan the use of his private jet to get him back to Sin City as soon as humanly possible.

1008-dana-white-plane-tmzWe're told Stephan immediately took Dana up on his offer -- but he still has a contingency plan if all else fails ... Skype.

Andrea says Stephan plans to video conference in to his wife's birth if he can't make it in time -- but she adds, "We're trying to avoid even thinking about that."
