Ryan Bader Talks About His Prep For Machida Bout | UFC NEWS
“He’s been great. He comes in and we drill, we spar, he has the Machida stance, blitzes, the different kicks that he does, the trips. So I see it and I’m not surprised. We’ve been drilling quite a bit with him. He’s actually been really really good to have in addition to camp. … I feel like if I hadn’t done that I’d be surprised in the Octagon, but I’ve been through it… He’s done everything that Machida does and he brings that into the Octagon when we spar, so I’ve seen it hundreds of times. It’s not going to be the first time when I step in the Octagon that I’ve seen different stuff from Machida, so I feel good and I feel good about this fight and I’m ready.”
