Ryan Bader rose to prominence by winning The Ultimate Fighter.
“Darth,” who returns to action later this month against Ovince St. Preux at UFC Fight Night 47, earned one of his more noteworthy victories when he defeated Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 144.
At the time, Bader improved to 14-2 with his only losses coming to Tito Ortiz and Jon Jones via submission. Since defeating Jackson, a former UFC light heavyweight champion, Bader has gone 3-2, including two straight wins.
Check out a replay of the 2012 meeting between Bader and Jackson in the video below. UFC Fight Night 47 is set for August 16, with the main card airing on FOX Sports 1. Bader and OSP will compete in the main event.
