The Ultimate Fighter 8 winner Ryan "Darth" Bader stayed undefeated, scoring a valuable victory against the veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Bader's superior wrestling skills were the difference in the match-up, as the unbeaten prospect managed to take down Nogueira on several occasions. Little Nog responded with striking combinations that troubled Bader, but the Arizona-native managed to survive and force the fight to the decision. In the third round, Bader and Nogueira exchanged blows, but neither man was able to finish the fight.
Ryan Bader won a clean 30-27 Unanimous Decision, improving his record to 12-0. Bader will now square off against Jon Jones, in what could determine the identity of the next UFC Light Heavyweight Title challenger.
