Nice

Some solid fights being announced tonight. I like Glover to continue his streak here.

Glover by murder. Probably.

I think Ryan Bader's shown what he can do. He hits hard, he's got a nice power double leg, and he's generally lost only by very good fighters, but he hasn't put in enough practice time for a dangerous guard, tactical clinch takedowns, or refined striking. I don't see him changing as long as he stays in Arizona, and even then, I think he's always gonna be one of those guys who wins more on athleticism than technique.

Not sipping the kool-aid or anything, I simply feel Glover's too strong in most parts of the game. If he gets on top of Bader with more than a couple minutes left, he's going to put it to bed. I have only 2 questions, and they're things that we haven't seen from Glover yet in the UFC - how does he deal with speed, and what kind of guard does he have. He's got a solid chin and incredible cardio, but can he handle a blitz from a fast guy like Bader. And while his top game is like giving Mjolnir to a python, I don't know what kind of escapes he'll have from the bottom.

Glover is going to destroy Bader. I got a feeling this will be a nasty KO

WAR GLOVER

A few bombs and some attempted wrestlef*cking is what Glover needs to avoid. If he can do this...he will win.

i think glover can ko bader..but im not counting bader out at all. He has only been beaten by former champs.

Me too, Bader has solid wrestling and unlike Rampage he'll use it which should even things up! I'm excited for this fight!

great fight. i think glover takes this one. i was really impressed with how well rounded glover is. his wrestling may not be as good as bader's is on paper but to be honest i have never been that impressed with bader's wrestling. also, glover's standup is much more technical IMO. Bader FTW, probably UD
