    Let's say this fight takes place at Light Heavyweight

    I think Whittaker knocks him out with a vicious counter punch. Ryan's chin has been shattered multiple times and I know a sharp, fluid counterstriker like Robert Whittaker can do it too. Whittaker has elite takedown defense and fantastic cardio that would nullify Bader's size advantage and keep the fight where he wants it.

    Whittaker via 2nd round KO is my pick

    The size is a huge factor. Bader is best suited for heavyweight despite his long LHW career.

    Whittaker is a savage and a lot more talented. We also don't know what kind of power he'd carry without a weight cut.

    I'd lean Whittaker for sure but bader isn't the easy fight he once was for top fighters

    Ryan would never get him down to the ground, easiest win for Robert ever.

    Bader will beat him because heavyweight beats welterweight.

    My god the people defaulting to Bobby are insane.

    This is an insanely difficult fight for Bobby. I dont think he wins imo.

    Using Melvin manhoef as a disclaimer is pretty funny given he is the hardest pound for pound hitter in mma.

    Manhoef also has 14 losses (12 of them finishes) and has only been drug tested twice to my knowledge (both in strikeforce and both losses)

    Everyone calling for Whittaker via murder makes me think Whittaker doesn't fight often enough.

    But he beat Romero who never really uses his wrestling so of course he would beat Bader. /s

    I'm confused are you trying to make some kind of point here? Bader got beaten by lhw fighters which he was until recently. How is this relevant.

    Whittaker is good but he is no Anderson Silva, who KOed LHWs in the first round. I believe Bader soundly beats Robert
