Ortiz has to get on top of Bader and the Hammill fight really showed how much fighters defence against his TD's from past years has improved i dont think he has a chance realistically but if Bader decides to strike the whole time then its a coin flip if he is smart he will just take it to the ground and get the easy W.

Velasquez will be back

Wow Tito is shredded



could be interesting. Tito is a better striker and despite the Chuck fights he has a fairly decent chin. Bader hits hard though something Tito doesn't do and Bader should be the better wrestler despite the fact that his mma wrestling is somewhat questionable. I think its a tough fight for Tito but I still think this fight is only 60/40 Bader.

Tito is better off his back, better on top and is technically the better striker. Bader is younger more explosive, the more powerful striker and is on paper the better wrestler. That said Bader barely out wreslted Lil Nog who Jason Brilz looked much more impressive against.

Wow, Tito is bald and irrelevant. Good thing he has his padded record against undersized nobodies that he can fall back on. He's a joke now but it's gonna be Fred Durst level in no time. Glad to see it really, always hated him.

He will be a good strikeforce fighter though. He says he'll retire but if he can main event a SF card he might make good enough money to stick around. He might even be a contender.

I'm predicting a first round KO by Bader. I dont dislike or hate Tito - I simply just believe he is out-classed in this fight. I dont see Tito going the distance.

Given the fitness level of both of these guys, this is one of the fights I am looking forward to tonight.

The same nobodies that Chuck Liddell fought in the UFC and made him a household name?

Bader will probably win, but I think a rejuvenated Tito could get back to his old winning tactics.
Tito was able to catch Machida in a choke and almost finished him, I dont think he should win but anytime someone says Tito has no chance I assume its a emotional response.

His striking is crisper but he has less power, he's got better ground & pound but I dont see him getting top position on Bader.

His chin is the biggest chink in his armor IMO and I think Bader has the power to trun the lights out at some point in the fight.

Just a heads up to any gamblers:

Tito Ortiz is paying out close to 5:1 most places now. I am not a person who would advise somebody to bet money on something, but if I were.....
