    At least in my opinion one of the best even though the fighter is female and that would be
    Vanessa Porto who should have been at UFC 2 years ago when the Flyweight division
    took off for the Women.

    One that hasn't been mentioned is Lance Palmer. He may be boring as fuck but he's 22-3 and avenged two of those losses. Competition certainly isn't the best but considering the demanding structure of the PFL, I think he deserves a nod.

    Might catch some flack here but he'd probably grind many of the UFC/Bellator featherweights including a lot of fan favorites I won't name.

    It's a very good point. I suppose it's partially that the guys he's beaten in recent times haven't been big names but he's a good wrestler

    As for guys who have never fought in the UFC, I have to go with Douglas Lima and Patricio Pitbull.

    I think Lance is a top 10 FW for sure, I also think he'd give Pitbull quite a lot of trouble if they ever fought.

    What do you think was so bad about his UFC run? I agree it’s hard to say whether Bader has improved or if his competition just diminished. I think it’s some of both personally.
    Bader’s UFC record: 16-5
    Beat Lil Nog, Rampage, Phil Davis, Rashad, Latifi...

    Lil Nog Was 100 .....Rampage was clearly injured....Not really sure he beat Davis ( awful fight ) ....Evans was a shell of himself and Litifi isn’t that good.....I was responding to someone that thought Bader would have a good chance against Stipe / Cormier.....when he’s fought guys of that caliber in the past he wasn’t competitive....don’t see anything that makes me feel it would be different

    Yeah, I wouldn’t bet on him to beat Stipe or Cormier. But Bader’s a solidly good fighter. Also he fought Lil Nog twice. The first time was way back in 2010–Lil Nog was only 90 years old at that time ;)
    I actually met Bader once after the Fedor-Bader weigh in. Very nice, down to earth guy—especially considering I was all decked out in Fedor gear and clearly wasn’t supporting him in the fight, lol.
