Ryan Bader will take on Tito Ortiz at UFC 132 this summer and talked about the match up with the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and his thoughts on fighting a guy like Ortiz instead of a Jon Jones:
"Although it's a step down in competition from Jon Jones and (Antonio Rogerio) Nogueira, I got a chance fight a guy like Tito, a legend of the sport, and we took it. It's almost like a novelty fight for me going in there and (fighting) a guy I grew up watching. I'm a fan and a fighter. I want to be a part of his legacy and vice versa. I want to have Tito Ortiz in my win column."
