Ryan Bader will headline Bellator 180 on Saturday, challenging champ Phil Davis, which is a redo of their UFC fight (that Bader won via split decision). Now, Bader didn’t do so bad in his time in the Octagon – he won TUF, and when he fought in the UFC proper, he really only lost to the best.
But now it’s time for his Bellator run, and given how good the organization has been for those who’ve eschewed Octagon life for the pastures of the Bellator cage, it’s possible we might see a Bader rebooted, and better than before.
(Of course, the opposite may be true, and Bader could totally crap the bed, but who knows.)
So here’s a little hype reel for the man, courtesy of Bellator’s marketing people.
