    I'm looking forward to this fight. OSP could find himself a fight away from a title shot with a win against Bader.

    Osp has a long way to go before he is title fight ready. I think his TDD is good enough to keep it standing, but his work off the cage needs refinement.

    Favorite fighters: Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, Michael Johnson, Jose Aldo, Chris Weidman.

    I agree, but getting a title shot and being ready for a title shot are two different things in Zuffaland. After Goose and Cormier, the LHW division is starved for contenders. I wouldn't be surprised to see Rumble/OSP for a #1 contenders fight early next year.

    This is the same OSP that Mousasi (a small LHW, natural MW) was taking down over and over, and shutting out for 3 rounds right?

    Bader's striking looked great in his last fight and he still has those strong takedowns. I think Bader will muscle up on OSP and come in with a solid gameplan to take the win.

    Yup, that very fight that was three years ago. Lots changed since then.

    This should be a good fight. I think OVP has it.
