I like glover, but he's pretty new to me, i think a win here would make him seem a bit more legit. maybe i just need to go look at some of his pre-ufc fights

Easy pickings for Glover.

I actually think Bader is going to pull the upset here and drop Glover. As far as fanfare in concerned, I really don't like or dislike either one of these guys, pretty impartial to this main event to tell you the truth... so, I don't know... gut feeling I guess.

If Bader wins, it will really be an upset. Aside a lucky punch, because he has legit power, I can't see him out striking Glover and even less out grappling him.
I wish I could see that live, but duty calls.

Glover will destroy Bader. Bader has some power, but he hasn't knoсked out anyone worth mentioning other than Jardine 3 years ago

Would Bader beating Golver be a bigger upset then Da Silva beating Benavidez?

Not quite going by the bookies.

I think there is much more variance at 205 with 2 power punchers going at it, can only take 1 punch.


Where at 125, an underdog more or less has to really go out there and be better than his opponent.

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.

I can't see Glover losing this.
