It's Now or Never for Ryan Bader

Ryan Bader doesn't want to be remembered as a has-been or never-was
By: Damon Martin, FOX Sports
"Since winning The Ultimate Fighter 8, Ryan Bader has been a staple around the top 10 of the light heavyweight division, often putting together multi-fight winning streaks and competing in main events or co-headlining bouts during his career.
 
"Despite sitting in the enviable position of being a ranked fighter for the majority of his tenure with the UFC, Bader has still not been able to crack the code to earn a title shot or to win the 205-pound title. He's come close to the shot on a few occasions, most notably when he took on Jon Jones as an undefeated prospect and again when facing off with Lyoto Machida in 2012.
 
"On both occasions, Bader lost and had to go back to the end of the line to start all over again."
