Jon Jones is coming back therefore you are not deserving of the title shot.
Brigham - Jon Jones is coming back therefore you are not deserving of the title shot.
Bader has no fanbase, same as Stipe, which why we have Werdum vs Cain II
How does fighting guys ahead of you not make sense?
Give him the fucking title shot ffs.
Where was this during the post fight press conference!
Bader vs rumble
If it's not Jones then I'm with you.
Jones did it to himself, let him sit on the shelf for a while and give Bader his shot.
Wrinkle - Jones did it to himself, let him sit on the shelf for a while and give Bader his shot.Yea, I bet that's exactly what the UFC is thinking. sarcasm
I have nothing against Bader, but the only way he gets the next title shot is if Jones fucks up again.
Never though I'd become a genuine Ryan Bader fan, but I respect the hustle and he's been improving steadily.
Clarence Parents - Never though I'd become a genuine Ryan Bader fan, but I respect the hustle and he's been improving steadily.
That is a pretty exclusive club.
Clarence Parents - Never though I'd become a genuine Ryan Bader fan, but I respect the hustle and he's been improving steadily.I have respect for the guy, I just think he's boring as shit.
I think someones been listening to Big Brown on the JRE.
I don't ever want to see Ryan "Decision" Bader win the title nor fight for it.
He just has no redeemable qualities. He reminds me of your average bro-dude.
As a 40+ year follower of the NFL, a comparison between Ryan Bader and the 2000 Baltimore Ravens is highly instructive: The '00 Ravens weren't seen as "exciting" either - because they didn't have some diva quarterback who led the league in fantasy points every week. They had Trent Dilfer - who this complete idiot I was arguing with over whether the Eagles should hire Bill Cowher to replace Andy Reid when Reid was on his last legs with Philadelphia in 2012 said was better than John Elway because he won the Super Bowl in his seventh year in the league while it took Elway 15 years to win one (this dork also said that Cowher similarly "sucked" because he didn't win the Super Bowl until his 14th season with the Steelers).
But the key fact here is "win the Super Bowl" - something the Ravens did in 2000.
If the NFL determined its "title shots" the way the UFC determines theirs, the Ravens wouldn't have been allowed to even play in Super Bowl XXXV.
