    Bader if the fight goes past 4 mins.

    On paper Feijao should be a bad matchup for Bader: excellent TDD. decent subs, strong, and dangerous MT. His conditioning is always a question mark.

    want bader to win

    think bader will win. bader definitely has the weaker chin, but he's got the stronger wrestling and gas tank.

    Bader. His striking has improved a lot, he's underrated. I think his mental game is his only/biggest weakness.

    Feijao is just a sloppy brawler who's been caught juicing and has a 3 min gas tank. He might win because he's definitely dangerous, but he's not a serious guy at LHW.

    Clearly Bader. For the record Feijao is the more skilled fighter though.

    Ideal and a very good match-up in my opinion, will be interesting, I'm leaning towards Bader, but can see Rafael coming out strong and pulling an early finsh, stoked.
