Not sure how to describe this fight. It was messy...haha.

Bader came out on all 12 cylinders trying to end it as quickly as possible utilizing his power weapons; right overhand bombs, upper cut was nice, high kick, takedowns, and his guillotines. Give Glover credit cuz he shrugged it all off for the most part which shows he is indeed a much higher caliber fighter on paper and in the Octagon. Is he the next big thing. Not sure. He's solid, very solid though with the exception of having some defensive holes because of speed imo.

If Glover was quicker he would have a much better chance. He's a bit slow and bulky, but fairly durable chin.

I like his statement about being too over confident, "being a wake up call."

Gustaf then Glover next. Glad to have caught the main event just in time.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
