It will be a battle of two of the fastest rising stars in the light heavyweight division when Ryan Bader meets Jon Jones at UFC 126 in February, but the hype for the bout has begun already.

Fresh off of his honeymoon, Bader is already in preparation mode to get ready to deal with the problems that Jones potentially presents in this fight. The former Arizona State All-American is quick to point out however that this isn’t the first time he’s faced a fighter with an unusual offense.

“It’s hard to emulate Jon Jones, just like it was hard to emulate Keith Jardine,” Bader said on Friday. “They’re both unorthodox, Jon is a great, dynamic, exciting fighter. He’s flashy, (throws) spinning elbows, spinning back kicks. I’m more of a grinder and just go out there and get the job done.”

Does Jon Jones have to respect Ryan Bader? Probably. Do any of us have to think Bader will win? Not really. He has heavy hands and good wrestling, but Jones is a phenom! I feel this should be his toughest test to date, though.

With all do respect, I have to disagree with you. Jone Jones is phenomenal but Bader is also a fantastic fighter. I think there are a number of people including myself that think Bader can win this fight and will win this fight.

I think Bader is going to get mauled, and mauled bad.
