From MMAMania.com

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 8 light heavyweight winner Ryan Bader (9-0) announced today via Twitter.com that he will return to action against ground specialist Eric Schafer (11-3-2) at UFC 104, which is scheduled for the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., on Oct. 24.

It will mark the first fight for “Darth” Bader – who is an accomplished collegiate wrestler from Arizona State University (ASU) – since he injured the MCL and PCL in his knee during a unanimous decision win over Carmelo Marrero at UFC Fight Night 18 back in April.

“Red” – who is now quietly enjoying a four-fight win streak – blasted Antonio Mendes en route to a first round technical knockout win in his most recent appearance at UFC UFC 93: “Franklin vs. Henderson” earlier this year. He now has three wins in five UFC fights under his Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, which he will more than likely look to leverage against the Arizona Combat Sports product on fight night.
