if you had asked me before today's fights i would have said glover by tko, but now after seeing bader's performance i really would not have a clue. Don't see glover getting bader down so......

Personally I think Glover can win this fight all 3 ways. Bader on the other hand I can only see him winning this fight one way and thats on decision. He would have to get Glover down and control him with his wrestling because if he doesn't I think Glover makes quick work of him.

I can see Glover knocking him out. Bader doesn't have the strongest chin and Glover hits like a truck. Bader could try getting him down and grinding him out but Glover showed lat night how great his wrestling is. Rashad had a lot more trouble taking Rampage down.

I think Bader would win it. Bader would look much faster and could get Glover to the ground.

Athletic guys are going to be a problem for Glover b/c he is more a power guy and not as fast as them.

I think Tex will catch Bader shooting in and finishing it but his striking defense isn't very good. Bader can rock Tex and finish him, but I wouldn't bet on it

i dont think glover would finish him, but i think he would probably beat him down for the entire fight. bader has power but his standup is not nearly as technical as glover's and to be honest, i have not been impressed with baders TD's even though he has a great wrestling pedigree. i would even say that gover could out wrestle bader. glover's MMA wrestling is really impressive.

Glover gassed again last night. He made Page's conditioning look almost acceptable.
Hard fight to call, but I think I'd probably go with Bader decision. Glover is definitely capable of knocking him out though.

Bader does that to you, every time I see him fight I go into the fight thinking he's either about to break through, or he's about to prove overrated.. then he does the opposite. He is great against competition that isn't elite (or a destiny backed Tito Ortiz)
