Bader looked pretty decent last night. I was more underwhelmed by Vladdy who i think has the ability to really cause Bader some trouble. Vladdy needs to get some real ring time in. It seems like all of his fights are over to fast to really asses him going forward. I checked and his last 5 fights in the UFC total to only 7.5 minutes combined. He's only averaging 90 seconds a fight for the last 2.5 years. The guys he's losing to are guys you kind of expect him to get beat by, but it would be nice if he could get some more time in. Going forward, I don't really know how to feel about his chances against anybody.
Back to Bader. I still think his striking is pretty piss poor, but I think his skillset is one that keeps him around the top quarter of the 205 division for a long time. Guys with good footwork and decent hands are going to give him fits.
