    Default Bader vs Jones @ UFC 126

    How does Bader win this fight?
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    I'm rooting for Bader but I think Jones' striking skills are far above baders. Jones wrestling is also good so its going to be a tough fight for Bader. Bader has the strength advatage but I think that's all he has going for him. Cardio wise I haven't seen Jones gas out in any of his fights appose to Badar he seems to slow down as the fight goes on.

    Looks like it might not happen. Which I wouldn't be too upset about because a) I think it's a dumb fight for Bader to take and b) then I can have my 30th bday weekend in Vegas without having to plan around the UFC.

    I don't think Bader really has the strength advantage. He looks like it, but i think Jones is one of those dudes who is WAY stronger than he looks. I didn't think the fight should have happened in the 1st place because in effect, the UFC loses a lil sheen on one of the 2 best LHW prospects.

    I think Bader can win by being better with the basics than Jones. I have seen this a lot in wrestling as well. Guys that looked great dominating with flashy moves will get matched up against someone who is extremely solid with excellent basic skills and positioning and his flashly stuff stops working.

    Jones has looked so good in the matches I have seen, it would be hard to pick against him, but assuming that Bader is a big underdog I would lay some money on him.

    Exactly.... Jones is a step above Bader, and he just would get worked.
