Ryan Bader

I think that Ryan Bader will hold the lhw title in the UFC at some point. The dude is a great wrestler, showed a good ground game against carmello marrero, and has a lot of power in his hands. I think he has a ton of potential to be very good. Thoughts?

He might actually turn out a very decent fighter, but personally I think he's a slow learner. Hopefully he gets a muscular epiphany so he can be in a title fight.

There's something about Bader that reeks of potential. Not there yet though, but the raw materials he has right now are pretty impressive.

From what little we've seen of him so far, has he been in even the slightest bit of trouble?

Bader is a monster and will be champion some day. He has the best wrestling in the division, ok boxing with great power, and the Merello fight showed his ground game is improving rapidly.

He is my pick to beat Machida down the line, but I mean like 3-5 years down the line and by UD.

Forum Bets: 2-0

Every fighter will get better in time and Ryan Bader shows that he had a ton of potential. Within time he will get better but I don't see him being the LHW champion. Not with the guys that are in the division now.

Too much heat for Ryan Bader to handle..
