    Bader's standup is finally somewhat progressing now that PowerMMA has an actual boxing coach, and his wrestling is always top notch.

    Bader's power and cardio, combined with Rashad coming off multiple surgeries and a 2 year layoff, its not inconceivable that Bader could land a big shot on Rashad.

    Gotta give it to Bader, he's got balls for saying he's gonna KO Evans.

    At that point, he'd earn a shot at the belt.

    But Machida is the only one to ever KO Evans, and Bader is not even close to Machida in striking.

    Rashad is too quick and his footwork is too good. Bader is going to have to edge this one out.

    He may very well win a lackluster fight between the two but I can't see him finishing Rashad anywhere, even with the long lay off and ring rust.

    Rashad had trouble with Dan Henderson in 2013. Ryan Bader is atleast slightly better right now than Dan was in 2013 imo.

    Bader cant finish Evans by trying to hold him and dry hump him.

    Bader is good. He's top 10 for sure but i feel like he'll never be top 5. But this is his chance for a title shot given the weak state of the LHW division

    Yes and I loved every second of it. I hope he comes in underestimating rashad. I think he's already doing that.
