Bader Feels Fight With Ortiz Is A Novelty Fight

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.”
