Meet The TUF 8 Cast (Light Heavyweights)

1.       Ryan Bader

              Record: 7-0

              Age: 24

              Trains: Arizona Combat Sports (Chandler, AZ)

MMAblog Prediction: Many consider Bader to the favorite going in.  He surely has the wrestling skills as he is all All-American wrestler.  He will be a lot like his friend and training partner, C.B. Dolloway.  I think Bader could do well and should have a future in the UFC.
