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?

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

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.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

GTFO.

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.

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

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

I vote misprint.

Moved to rumors section.

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

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.
