StrikingMMA - Bader isn't even the best LHW. He's far from the best HW.
Can't believe you would make this claim after he beat a broken down Kongo.
To put things into perspective; Tito's last UFC win was against Bader. Tito went 1-7-1 in his last 9 UFC fights with Bader being his only win.
What has not being the best in another division got to do with anything?? Whittikar, Rumble and plenty of others had more success moving up in weight.
Sure Jones could bounce up and beat him. But as it stands Jones isn’t a HW.
And i’m not entirely sure how a loss in another division 8 years ago puts anything in perspective.
At heavyweight, Bader has beaten a years-past-his-prime Fedor, Mitrione, and King Mo.
Stipe has beaten Daniel Cormier, Werdum, JDS, and Overreem.
