"A light heavyweight bout between Ryan Bader and Vladimir Matyushenko has been targeted for next month's UFC on Fox event in Chicago.

Sources have confirmed to ESPN.com that the bout has been targeted for the Jan. 26 card, set to take place at the United Center.

Bader (14-3) will look to rebound from a TKO loss he suffered to Lyoto Machida in August. The 29-year-old is 2-1 in his last three fights, with wins over Jason Brilz and Quinton Jackson.

Matyushenko (29-6) will also try to put a loss behind him. The 41-year-old veteran had a two-fight win streak snapped last December when he suffered a first-round TKO loss to Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 141.

A flyweight title bout between Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson is scheduled to headline the UFC on Fox event."

Koch/Lamas should be on the main card over this.

I really admired Bader after the Machida fight, he knew he was losing, he knew he needed something and even if it got him KO'ed it showed he wasn't content to just let Machida school him. So I'll go with him here, would have liked to seen the Vera fight though.

Yea I agree. How is Koch/Lamas not on the main? Why wouldn't they just use it to lead off a PPV if they don't want it on FOX?

Koch just was scheduled to take on Aldo. This is basically...no it IS a #1 contender fight. How the hell is it on the prelims? Makes no sense.

I'm a huge fan of The Janitor but I think he's going to really struggle here. His strength is his wrestling which isn't going to help him much against Bader. Vlad does have power though so he could get the KO. I predict Bader by decision.

Vlad has a terrible chin at this point. Bader stops him eventually...sooner than later.

Gimme fight for Bader. Funny how the UFC has to prop up their overhyped failures by giving them fights they are sure to win.

KimboP4PGOAT 12-03-2012 09:05 PM

Also I can't wait for the Guida fight. He has the most devastating feints in MMA. Guida by brutal split decision.

Wins over Rampage and Lil' Nog yet he's a failure....

Solid considering it's the 4th fight. Looks like a solid card. I will watch up until the "main event".
