A lot of people have wondered who Ryan Bader would face coming off of his embarrassing loss to Tito Ortiz at UFC 132. Well, it looks like we have our answer now. The former Ultimate Fighter winner will face Jason Brilz. The good old UFC webpage kept this one short and sweet:
Also agreed to on that same fight card is a second light heavyweight showdown, this one between Jason "Hitman" Brilz and Ryan "Darth" Bader.
Bader is actually on a two-fight losing streak, as he was also defeated by current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones back at UFC 126. Those were the first two losses of his career, and it remains to be seen whether Bader can still be a force in the division or not. Brilz has also lost two fights in a row, and could very well be looking for a new employer if he loses this fight, although his loss to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira was by the slimmest of margins and might not be counted against him.
