    Book it Bellator.
    Want to see Bader eat another one of Lyoto's knuckle sandwiches.

    Wouldn't be dying to see it but definitely would check it out. Be interesting to see how or if it plays out different this time now that Lyoto is believed to be a fading legend.

    I'd be interested to see the odds on the fight myself.

    If he beats Bader for the HW title, that's 4 HW champs Jones will have beaten:)

    id pick bader this time around...bader seems to be a much smarter fighter these days...doesn't just rush in and get tagged...I see bader using his standup to get the takedown...

    I think I heard an interview where Bader said he didn’t even have a striking coach in his camp for the Machida fight.

    He doesn’t cut weight to get to LHW, why the hell would he fight at HW? He literally isn’t big enough

    Bader has improved exponentially.

    Lyoto has regressed as much as Bader has improved.

    You know an organization is weak when you have old and washed up, former UFC fighters fighting for a title.

    I'm not sure at this stage of Lyoto's career that he'd beat Bader.

    Bader has improved alot since their first meeting.

    Lol. Bader won 7 of 8 of his last UFC fights before gong to Bellator. Machida won his last 2 as well including 1 over an undefeated up and comer.

    If Bader is washed up then every fighter in the UFC LHW division is washed up besides Jones. You prob think Mousasi and Rory are washed up too.

    Bader has better hands now. Lyoto has taken some damage and slowed down.

    Could be a very different fight.

    Oh, you mean he beat a 60 year old Vitor Belfort and that "up and comer" who lost to Elias Theodorou and is currently on a 3 loss streak?

    {<jordan}

    You could only name 3 guys that could compete with the top guys in the UFC.

    I could probably list like 20 guys from the top of my head who would be champ if they moved to Bellator.

    He paid for a shotokan karate specialist that beat Machida in a tournament once.
