    Ain't happening, Bader is just not that good or marketable for the UFC.

    I would love for it to happen, but UFC has nothing to gain from it and Bellator has everything to gain. I don't see them doing it. Bader has improved a lot though. It would be a good fight.

    It’s a good fight, but I think “Super Fight” May be stretching it a bit.

    No way would UFC and Dana White want this. They have nothing to gain from it and Bellator has everything to gain, mainly legitimacy.

    Mousasi vs. Whittaker. Rory v. Woodley. Chandler v. Khabib. These are the only fights that are competitive on paper. Bader is a top 5 guy but DC is better than him everywhere.

    TS is fake news. Bader's coach talking about how he'd like to see it is neither Coker nor Dana suggesting it.

    Whats worse is the mods let this clickbait shit slide. Do they have no standards?

    TS should be double yellows for inventing a clickbait fake news title and banned if he does it again.

    Smh. So tired of this crap. I reported it because if no one does nothing will change, you guys should do the same.

    The UFC isn't about to even think of doing this.

    No way. UFC has too much to lose...could you imagine a current UFC champion losing to the champion of another organization? This is MMA folks...anything can happen. This kind of match would only serve to benefit Bellator's ratings long term and not the UFC's.

    NO! Bellator needs to collaborate with ONE. Not the UFC. UFC needs competition not allies. Theyre a fucking disgusting mess of a company.

    Should the UFC make it happen? No. It would be bad to recognize bellator in a peer way. And anything less than cormier's stopping bader in the first would be bad for the UFC.

    But would I like to see it, hell yes!!!

    Also cormier's stops bader inside 2 rds

    No way UFC would ever agree to put any of their champs up against any other orgs champs. Even the 1% fluke wins by a minor organization would hurt the UFC way too much. Mousasi rapes Whittaker and Rory punks Tyron by the way. Bader only has about a 1 in 20 shot against DC though.

    I’d love for this to happen and I’d be pulling for Bader.

    Not sure where the hate comes from. People here would rather watch people fight once a year and never defend than a pretty cool fight.
