It really is a shame that Bader isn't fighting in the UFC/HW...

    I'd be curious to see how he would do vs guys like Ngannou, Blaydes, Rozenstruik, Volkov, Lewis, Overeem...I think Bader is good enough to compete for a UFC HW title. He's a year younger than Stipe, 4 years younger than DC, 3 years younger than Overeem.

    I’d be thrilled with the master coming over for a cross promotion match.

    He's better than half of the top 10 LHWs and HWs.

    Big Frank and Blaydes are extremely poor style matchups for Bader imo.

    It's a fine balance, keeping only exciting fighters and letting go of those who don't bring excitement or fans...all while saying you're the best.

    If you're satisfied 95% of the time, I'd say that suggests they're doing pretty well at it.

    Everytime a former UFC guy shines in another league, I'm disappointed when he's back in the UFC. David Branch comes to mind.

    DC/Stipe/Ngannou/Blaydes all beat Bader and it wouldn't even be close

    So he’d potentially be top five then. Pretty good in my book.

    Not sure why there are comments about him at HW, the guy always made 205 easily. He only fought HW in bellator because of the tournament (and the money)

    If he came back to the UFC it would be at 205, a weight class that is currently pretty damn weak.

    He'd easily be top 5 and I'd pick him against guys like Smith Santos and Reyes, he'd takedown spam them to death

    Bader wouldn't do well. Against Ngannou it would like like Bader's fight with Rumble only worse. Panic shot and then he gets KO'd easily. Stipe would beat him easily also. Bader is good/very good but he's a gatekeeper in the UFC.

    He was already in the UFC and EA's already shown to be a middle of the road fighter
