    Which win do you guys consider Ryan Bader's most impressive career win?

    To me it is either his 15 second KO over King Mo

    or

    his domination against Rashad Evans beating him in the striking and the grappling/wrestling departments after Rashad talked a lot of smack in the lead up to the fight. Bader is the guy who started Evan's losing streak which led to his retirement.

    Honorable mentions to his dominating victories against Lil nog (1st fight as the second fight lil nog was old) , Rampage and OSP

    The Latifi knee stands out the most.

    Perhaps that was his most impressive finish but I wouldn't consider it his most impressive win/performance as Latifi dropped Bader in the first round of that fight.

    Phil is definitely one of the top names on his resume x2.

    Iol at "ko'ing King Mo" as being his "most impressive win".

    Latifi, Phil and Rampage.

    I like the King Mo KO. To me that is probably the most impressive given Mo's resume and status as one of the better LHWs outside the UFC, and most importantly that it was a super fast KO.

    Jones is probably the last guy who got any value out of a win over Rashad, to me anyways. Rashad hasn't looked good in a long time.

    Off topic a bit...

    I thought it was pretty badass that he called 50 Cent and told him to take his bet back or he'd lose money for the Mo fight.

    I like Mo, but he’s had some funky looking KO losses in the past

    wouldn’t expect him to do too well even in today’s ufc LHW scenario

    I don't know where King Mo was in that fight. I don't know how ready he was to perform... But it's gotta be Bader's most effective performance. I predict he will win the GP

    King Mo KO, but Id possibly go with Rampage win in Japan. Injured knee or not he stepped into his world and dominated him minus the slam from 'Page. Baders had good wins, he just gets a bad rep because casuals hate the wrestling grind he puts out. Lots of KOs and submissions. Personal fav gotta be Vinny getting slept in the TUF 8 finale.

    Newton KOing him was epic. Aside from that he got wrecked by juiced up Feijao and CroCop, the latter at HW.

    Bader's most impressive wins by ranking are all snoozers. Davis and Rampage wins were pretty boring.

    I think Latifi and Mo are his best knockouts, and neither are highly ranked. I just see Mo as better name value/resume than Latifi, and equally as good of a finish.

    Rampage. Bader was the favorite in every other fight mentioned.

    Mo and Latifi

    Dude is slept on. If he had fought smarter he'd have beaten Glover too.

    Him surviving Rampage spiking him was awesome but I think his most impressive win was Davis 2.

    If he beats Meathead that will be the most impressive win imo.

    Maybe Latifi or Phil.

    Knowing how far Rashad fell after that fight I can't really say this is his best win.

    King Mo or Latifi.

    I said it once and I'll say it again. Not resigning Bader was a bad decision. He is literally a top 3 LHW right now and the UFC needs all the 205ers they can get.

    Bader might have the biggest disparity in LHW history for skill level----fan care level
