LITTLE KNOWN FACT:
Bader broke onto the scene with his stint on the 8th season of reality show The Ultimate Fighter. Ryan’s disdain for defeat drove him to successfully beat four of his fellow contestants to win the TUF 8 title and a coveted UFC contract. Since Bader captured the contract, he hasn’t looked back.
Opening his pro-career with 12 straight victories, Bader became equally known for his powerful right hand as his famous wrestling abilities. Bader’s double leg takedown is considered to be one of the most feared in the sport, and his capacity to absorb shots to punish his opponents is nearly unmatched.
