While the odds were clearly stacked against him, Ryan Bader nearly earned an upset win over Glover Teixeira. But then it all went wrong...

If your opponent is hurt you prolly shouldn't go for a guillotine like Nog v Mir or start spamming big looping right hands.

With that said, it made for a hell of a fight.

Wasn't the first time Bader showed impatience either. Leaping into Machida's hand was also a bad idea.

Kind of funny how Tito rocked Bader and guillotined him in a huge upset and Bader looked to do the exact same thing.

While I was watching it I knew Glover was going to pull out a win some how. Great fight. After that one I think Glover finally deserves the winner of Jones/Gusty

Aggression and mental mistakes? More like glass jaw

Bones will destroy Glover. I don't see it being much of a contest.

It was really the only way he had to win. Can't outbox him in the pocket and wasn't winning the takedown battle. Had to move in hard and score on him. If he let off the gas and got KOd a few minutes later, he'd beat himself up for not rushing in for the kill. Can't second guess yourself there.

Ryan Bader did what Ryan Bader does. If he doesn't floor a guy with the first 1-2 punches, he tends to gas out or get caught. Watch the replay if you didn't already spot the series of punches after he clipped Glover - they're all similar, most coming from the same hand and the same angle, without a lot of accuracy or speed. One of the worst things a fighter can do in a situation when an opponent's hurt is to be predictable, because that allows an opponent to recover, react to the timing, and turn it around - or in the very least survive.

Thankfully, the card had at least 2 excellent demonstrations of finishes in Jacare Souza and Joe Benavidez. Each was different, too - Jacare threw slower but landed brutally each time, while Benavidez was faster but still precise and powerful. Even Glover's finish showed similar expertise. That's how to convince a guy to be elsewhere in that moment.

Personally I don't feel that Bader rocked Teixeira to begin with. Bader got whooped. End of story. I could care less about his excuses. He is cashed.

I'm not sure which fight you were watching, but Bader clearly rocked Glover. There's no question about it.

Glover said in the post-fight press conference that the punch made him dizzy. He felt it for sure.

Jordan Breen brought up a solid point as well - when Bader goes down, it's always super dramatic. Could be due to his heavy upper body mass, or other factors - either way, it's as close to slapstick comedy as professional violence gets, and a contrast to Glover's temporary drunk legs.

When I first started watching Bader fight I really did think he was gonna be the next big thing. Boy was I wrong

The reason I felt that way, was because I thought he was going to be a very dominant wrestler. I mean shit, look at the dude. Oh well

Bader for the love of god move to AKA with your old friend CAIN, become a killer. His natural born power being wasted pisses me off.

Oh, was falling over part of the game plan?
