Tito Ortiz vs. Ryan Bader – UFC 132
The Huntington Beach Bad Boy has achieved more accolades than Bader has in their respective careers. Ortiz is a former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion who once had the most defences of the light heavyweight strap.
That seemed a world removed from when he fought Bader, however. Ortiz had lost all three of his bouts before the Bader fight and was 0-4-1 in his last five bouts going into UFC 132. Bader had lost just one of his 13 fights going into the fight against Ortiz, which was against the future Light Heavyweight champion and top pound-for-pound fighter Jon Jones.
Despite the odds strongly being in Bader’s favour, Ortiz defeated Bader via guillotine choke in the first round, which would be his only victory over a nine-fight span.
