Bader dropping to middleweight.
Ive just heard that Ryan bader is dropping to middleweight because he feels its an easier route to the title at the weight. How can Ryan Bader make middleweight, hes built like a heavy?. Anyone else read anything else into this?? Apparantley ufc tweeted that Bader is dropping to middleweight but i cant seem to find anything on it?

Interesting that there's no other info out there on this. Can you link to the tweet?

If this is true, I have a feeling it's Nate v2.o. I don't see him making that cut unless he completely changes his training style to 90% cardio.

Ryan Bader could fight at Heavyweight if he wanted too.

If he makes 185 he's taking the same shit Marquardt was taking to make 170.

it seems like the rumour or what ever it is has come from this new magazine interview but this is all i can find.

Dontb elieve this for a second, Bader is one of the bigger LHW's.

Leakler 03-27-2012 06:24 AM

Struggling to believe this too, really can't see him making middleweight without almost dying?

Roflcopter 03-27-2012 07:05 AM

That seems more like an error than a legit source that Bader is dropping.

oldfan 03-27-2012 07:21 AM

yeah.... I searched and the only site reporting this is using that pic as their source.

I vote misprint.

Moved to rumors section.

I don't think this is going to happen. He is huge for 205.

jackfujimori 06-25-2012 05:29 PM

I believe it can happen. But I don't respect his decision as a fighter.
He's dropping his own weight because he can't seem to get where he wants with his natural body weight. If he was a true fighter, he would sack up and work harder - but instead he's backing out and going down a weight class where he now has a much bigger advantage.
