Ryan Bader jumped at the opportunity to fight MMA legend Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in the co-main event of UFC 144 in Japan. Rader (13-2) began his career with twelve consecutive victories which included becoming the Ultimate Fighter 7 winner. In 2011 Bader would suffer the first two losses of his career when he was submitted by Jon Jones and Tito Ortiz. However, he would get back on the winning track with a first round knockout of Jason Brilz at UFC 139. Bader believes that he has evolved as a fighter since those losses and he will be ready to utilize all of his skills against Jackson.
