Michael Bisping does not fancy Ryan Bader’s chances this weekend.
Bader is set to fight Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson on Saturday night at UFC 144 in Tokyo, Japan. There is a big disparity between the two’s profiles in the sport but Bisping thinks there will be a similar disparity in performances come fight night.
Asked if Bader had been granted a death sentence by the UFC, Bisping replied: "I'd say so. That's a very tough fight for Ryan Bader.
"Don't get me wrong, Bader's a tough guy and I've got a lot of respect for him, he came back from two tough losses impressively.
"But Rampage is going to be excited to fight in Japan, he'll be excited to get back to winning ways, that'll be a good win for Rampage."
