  1. Tito comes full circle…made most of his career beating up an old man in Ken Shamrock…now the role is reversed…props for him finally taking this fight though.

  2. Horrible matchmaking.

    Bader went from fighting the guy who could be the best fighter in the sport to his next fight against someone who hasn’t won in 5 years.

    What a joke.

  3. BJB…normally I’d agree…but Bader’s a guy they don’t wanna throw to the wolves…it was his first career loss and he got DOMINATED…a win over someone like Ortiz would be good for him…
