Is Ryan Bader a gatekeeper, and is that really such a bad thing?
(mmajunkie.com)
The article highlights two points of view on the topic: Fowlkes: Danny, with his win over Ovince Saint Preux last night, it seems to me that Ryan Bader has become the very definition of a gatekeeper. The only people to beat him (aside from Tito Ortiz, who I still suspect might have been the beneficiary of a temporary gypsy curse) are those who are or have recently been champs (Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida), or those who end up fighting for a title on the strength of the win (Glover Teixeira). Everybody else hits the Bader wall and is swiftly repelled back down the rankings. And by swiftly I mean gradually, over the course of several rounds. Downes: I’m still not sold on the “not really an insult” part. When you tell a fighter they’re a gatekeeper, all they hear is you calling them mediocre. We know that’s not true, because Bader, Bisping, and others with that title can be in the top 10 in their division, but you’re never going to convince them of that. Fighters adopt a Ricky Bobby mentality: “If you ain’t first, you’re last.”
