Whatever the new UFC owners have in mind for the promotion, it appears it doesn’t involve TUF winner Ryan Bader, as he’s just signed with Bellator.

Bader never really broke into the upper echelon of the light-heavyweights who called the Octagon home, but he did kick some butt and was known to be real good at stamping out the wannabes.

In Bellator, his options could include a matchup against champ Phil Davis, former champ Liam McGeery, and – *gasp* – a fight against Fedor Emelianenko?
