    With the current condition of Fedors chin this fight will be dangerous on the feet. It's not just a "if Fedor can keep it on the feet he wins" fights.

    Fedor can win on the feet but man, hes been floored by punches in 3 of his last 4 fights.

    Bader is going to be coming in harch with big power shots.

    Can Fedor avoid getting hurt on the feet?

    Hoping Fedor catches him, but can't see how he gets the W here and it kills me to say that

    His reaction speed isn't what it used to be, plus his game planning is shit. He may get blasted in the first minute.


    p.s. I adore Fedor and he's in my Top 5 of all time to root for.

    Fedors head movement is nonexistent now and he apparently watches no video of his opponents which is awful

    you know I love fedor as much as anyone on here.. he has a punchers chance IMO but yeah Bader is looking the best he ever has and Fedor is well into the twilight of his career, hell he retired once already. Grappling I dont think its even close on the feet Fedor can still knock out anyone if he lands first but yeah this is a fight where he pretty much has to go balls to the wall right off the bat, he sorted had to against chael as well though and he seemed to realize this. But he wont be able to toss bader like he did chael and he wont walk through his strikes either

    I'm not that worried about Bader doing anything on the feet, he's notoriously cautious against people who can strike ever since Machida laid him out.
    I'm a lot more concerned about Fedor's grappling cardio. Bader is a big boy and a very good wrestler, after a round of pushing each other around in the clinch I see Bader taking over and exhausting old Fedor.
    Hoping for a lightning quick overhand right or armbar from the GOAT.

    I love Fedor but I think Bader takes this one. Bader's hands are dangerous enough to keep Fedor honest on the feet and his wrestling will allow him to dictate where the fight goes. I'm still hoping Fedor can catch him early with a wild swing though

    I agree with many here.

    I can't totally discount Fedor because he still has fast, heavy hands. But if he doesn't land a big shot in the first minute or two, Bader will finish him.

    I don't know, I guess I'd give Fedor a 1 in 5 shot at winning. Hope it happens, but I don't expect it to.

    One last armbar against a wrestler would be sweet indeed.

    I recall a time.when bader lost the stand up battle to Eric the red Schaefer. I know he's a much better fighter now, but Ryan's only shot is to smother and leverage takedowns Against the cage. Fedor should be drilling chokes and/or Travis Browne elbows.

    I voted for Bader on the other thread but as we get close to the fight I've changed my mind. Fedor has all the advantages and should beat Bader the same way he did Sonnen.

    When you hear that hacky lightsaber drone cut through the arena...it will be time for Bader to avenge every wrestler Fedor has submitted or KOed by grinding out a mauling, takedown-heavy assault on the once great PRIDE champion.

    A KO could happen either way but Bader won't be lured into trying to drop the H-Bomb like Henderson.

    When this gp started I thought to myself it would suck if fedor lost to mir or chael. Once he got to the final and we knew it was gonna be Bader, I felt ok about the possibility of Fedor losing to him , no shame losing to a great mma fighter on a champion streak plus he is a classy good person. Out of the gp, he is the best candidate to lose to. Fedor getting to the finals is a victory in itself.

    I still believe in fedor though, I think speed will be the key factor in this fight. Speed kills like din Thomas said on jre’s podcast recently.

    Agree with OP.

    Teddy's best chance is to finish it standing early, but Bader is in his prime right now and has heavy hands of his own.

    Can Bader get caught? Sure, but Russia's favorite son has had a vulnerable chin for years now!

    of course he is, he ko'd lawal in like 14 seconds

    fedors only shot is landing a bomb in the first 2-3 minutes or the 1st round at the latest.
