Decent card. But who knows in 5 weeks this card could be looking like UFC 163

This card could really use 2 more solid main card fights. So far it's 3 very good fights and the rest are alright or not very intriguing.

It's a free card and I'll watch it happily either way though.

Bader's key to victory is to fight like Leonidas, with the intent of coming home with his shield or on it. Often times he likes to sit back and feel a guy out, then look to land a Nolan Ryan overhand right or the counter lead hook. That won't work against Teixeira, a case study in effective striking aggression. Glover likely won't let Bader get comfortable, no - he'll charge in smartly but with power, and he'll have the cardio to keep charging.

If Bader earns respect early with his power, he must keep going until the ref peels him off. Teixeira's durable and intelligent enough to take it to the ground. Bader's got a solid ground game himself; it's just that it's more about the power double and less about the all around game (especially defensively). I think giving Teixeira time to recover or, worse, a clean takedown would be a critical error.

Though Bader's power usually makes a compelling x-factor, I don't realistically see any other outcome beyond a one-sided R1 stoppage for Glover.

Glover should win a UD. If he wins would he get Davis, or Jones?, he won't fight Machida I heard. If he gets a finish he could move to the front easy. I doubt DC is moving down.
