Ryan «Darth» Bader
Ryan Bader is a American professional mixed martial artist.
Nothing to prove. Just take back what they stole from me.
Cheick Kongo is a French professional mixed martial artist.
Motivation has never been problem with me in my career. I don’t need motivation. When there’s a guy across the way that wants to kick your ass, I’m going to train my butt off, go in there, 100% dedication, body, mind, go in there and do what I need to do.
Every fight you go out there, it’s going to be tough. There’s no gimmies in this sport. Kongo is obviously won those fights for a reason. He just beat a tough, tough guy who held the heavyweight belt prior.
Ryan Bader is younger than Kongo, he is 36 years old. A good fighter with 12 victories by knockout. He won the last 7 fights, in his last fight he knocked out Fedor Emelianenko in the first round.
Kongo is 8 years older than Bader. But he is taller and has long arms. Can hit well, won 15 fights by knockout. Did not lose in the last 8 battles.
Bader has no choice but to get closer. Otherwise, he does not have so many chances against the long arms and powerful legs of the former kickboxer.
Champion Bader will defeat Kongo due to his youth and stamina.
