Ryan Bader Unphased By ‘Rampage’ Jackson’s Weight Cut Issues

Ryan Bader’s fight with Quinton Jackson at UFC 144 tonight could have been in jeopardy after ‘Rampage’ came in five pounds overweight yesterday at the weigh-ins in Japan, but speaking afterwards Bader confirmed he had no intention of calling the fight off.

As such he’ll accept 20% of ‘Rampage’s’ fight purse for his troubles and admits that rather than being troubled by the unexpected situation he’s drawing strength from it as he believes the former champion’s weight-cutting issues could point to him not taking the fight as seriously as he should be.

Check out what Bader had to say below in an interview with Ariel Helwani on Fuel TV following yesterday’s weigh-ins.
