Glover should win this one decisively. I'd say he has better grappling, better striking, a better chin, and better conditioning. Bader does have legit power though, so Glover can't get over confident and come in with his hands down. Bader may not have great striking, but he has the power to finish any light heavyweight in the UFC, so getting careless against him isn't a good idea.

I can see Bader's game plan being to press Glover against the cage, but I think Glover is too crafty for that. His conditioning is also solid, so I don't see him wearing down as fast as an out of shape Rampage did. I'd say Bader would get tired before him.
