Ryan Bader is trying to climb his way back into the land of the contenders following an understandable loss to Jon Jones and a horrible loss to Tito Ortiz. A knockout win over Jason Brilz shot him back into a big fight as he takes on Quinton Jackson at this Saturday's UFC 144.

When Michael Bisping, a close friend of Jackson, was asked about the fight, he made it clear that he thought it would be a very bad night for Bader (Via ESPN):

Asked if Bader had been granted a death sentence by the UFC, Bisping replied: "I'd say so. That's a very tough fight for Ryan Bader.

"Don't get me wrong, Bader's a tough guy and I've got a lot of respect for him, he came back from two tough losses impressively.

"But Rampage is going to be excited to fight in Japan, he'll be excited to get back to winning ways, that'll be a good win for Rampage."

We'll find out if he is right this Saturday night when Rampage fights in Japan for the first time in six years.
