I haven't seen a lot of evolution in him to be honest. He's a very similar fighter to what he's always been really... a strong, controlling wrestler with decent stand up and good power. He's always been a bit underrated due to the nature of his losses IMO, but he's a top 5 guy at 205 and shows plenty of promise at heavyweight.Bader has really evolved in recent years, apparently he didn’t get punched at all during the Heavyweight Grand Prix which is an insane effort.
Will be interesting to see where he goes from here, LHW or HW or both but huge props to him. He’s very deserving of all 3 belts.
Hoping MVP comes across to the ufc in the next couple of years. From all reports he doesn’t seem interested though.I wish Bellator was more accessible in Australia.
The card on the weekend features Venom Page vs Daley, Minakov vs Kongo 2 and Big Country vs Cro Cop. I’d probably buy that if it was on main event.
Got some decent talent at the top end, plus some decent ex UFC guys like Bader, McDonald and Mousassi still going at a decent level, have a lot of guys over the hill too which takes the polish off.
Bellator is such a minority in the scheme of things, they have a handful of top level fighters.
