Ryan Bader Highlights

By: KO2C 

UFC veteran Ryan Bader (22-5) was supposed to make his Bellator MMA debut against King Mo but an injury to Mo has propelled him into a title fight in his Bellator debut. Bader’s debut will come as the headliner for the Bellator 180 PPV televised prelims as he faces off with Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion Phil Davis (17-3) this Saturday (June 24).

Jon Jones

Part-Time Job Jones was a college wrestler and criminal justice student at Iowa Central when his girlfriend Jessie’s surprise pregnancy left him in need of quick cash. He visited an MMA gym and took his first fight within months – then five more in the next 3 months, winning them all. Jones and that girlfriend are now engaged with three daughters.

Quick Rise Jones entered the UFC in August 2008 on a few weeks’ notice, won, and was rewarded with bouts against future Hall of Famer Stephan Bonnar and a UFC 100 spot against Jake O’Brien. Near effortless wins over veterans Brandon Vera and Vladimir Matyushenko followed before he dominated previously-unbeaten Ryan Bader at UFC 126. Jones’ only loss came at when a poor referee call resulted in a disqualification loss to Matt Hamill, in a fight he was by all accounts winning soundly.

Title Shot After his UFC 126 win, while still inside the Octagon, Jones was offered the chance to step in for injured teammate Rashad Evans to face light heavyweight champ “Shogun” Rua on six weeks’ notice. Jones accepted and went on to dominate Rua as well as his subsequent opponents: “Rampage” Jackson, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans and Vitor Belfort.

King Among Kings Just 23 years old when he defeated Shogun, Jones became the UFC’s youngest-ever world champion. Jones has successfully defended his light heavyweight title in a division-record six consecutive fights. He’s also finished nine opponents by either knockout or submission, tying Chuck Liddell for most finishes in light heavyweight history.

Family Way Jones’ older brother Arthur plays for the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts while younger sibling Chandler plays for the New England Patriots. It was those same brothers who dubbed him “Bones” growing up, since he was too skinny to find his footing on the gridiron.

Stand-Up Guy Jones is one of two fighters in UFC history to earn two submissions while standing, choking out both Lyoto Machida at UFC 140 and Jake O’Brien at UFC 100 with standing guillotine chokes (the other is Patrick Smith).

I watched the State of the Union so you don’t have to
  • Obama: “I’m gonna keep it short this year lol!!” *doesn’t*
  • Uncle Joe Biden stands and claps whenever he can, while Paul Ryan sits and nods like a grim, oddly smug mole
  • Applause after every sentence
  • Standing ovation after every use of the words “troops” or “veterans”
  • A really heartfelt section about not discriminating against Muslims idk i got a lil emotional
  • Random shot of Dr. Jill Biden and the lady sitting next to her is wearing a bedazzled hat (respect)
  • “I’m guessing we won’t agree on healthcare anytime soon”
  • Kim Davis is there?!?!?!? For some reason?!?!?!
  • Several loud ‘boos’ when he talks about curing cancer. why 
  • Mispronounces ‘quagmire’ as ‘quogmire’
  • “Our troops are the finest fighting force in the history of the world” got a standing ovation from both parties even though it’s bullshit
  • “btw i killed bin Laden”
  • “btw i solved ebola”
  • Last few minutes of the speech are about all different Americans who represent hope for the future– okay I’m crying I admit that part got me real bad
  • The speech ends and the news anchors are talking about what this means for the 2016 election before Obama has even left the podium
  • Time goes on i suppose

All fighters but one make weight for UFC 192
