UFC 119 Fight Results: Ryan Bader Defeats Antonio Rogerio Nogueira

The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 winner Ryan Bader has been overshadowed by the hype that Jon Jones has been getting. Both fighters are undefeated mixed martial arts fighters and gifted athletes. Jones has rolled past his opponents while Bader had to grind it out to earn his wins.

Bader faced a legendary fighter in Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 119 in Indianapolis on Saturday. Rogerio or Little Nog is a PRIDE Japan veteran and the twin brother of former PRIDE and UFC Interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

Bader won by unanimous decision over Nogueira in what seems to be a tollgate for him to set up a fight against Jon Jones. Nogueira appeared tentative after a Bader takedown that sent him crashing to the mat. On several occasions, Bader connected with solid strikes as well, neutralizing Nogueira’s advantage in his boxing skills.

The undefeated Bader showed that he is no longer just a one-dimensional fighter. His strong wrestling background is a good base for an MMA career. His continuous development in the sport should make the 27-year old light heavyweight a face to watch in the heavily stacked weight class.

For the main event of the night, Mirko Filipovi? or commonly known as Cro Cop will be facing Frank Mir for the Heavyweight bout.

Will his policeman skills beat the black belt rank of Frank Mir on both Kenpo Karate and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? Both fighters are on Southpaw stance. Mir has a greater advantage on the reach though but nonetheless, their fight is not totally mismatch. It is supposedly a rematch between Mir and Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira (Minotauro) but the latter pulled out due to knee surgery.

However, another Nogueira would be fighting anyway. He is no other than the twin brother of Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira, Antônio Rogério Nogueira. He will be facing Ryan Bader for the Light Heavyweight bout. Will Nogueira be the first person to give the first loss of Bader? He has remained undefeated for all his 11 fights wherein 5 of his wins are by way of knockout.

The third match would be the Welterweight bout of Matt Serra and Chris Lytle. Lytle has never been knocked out or submitted to defeat and has the homecourt advantage. Will the former UFC Welterweight Champion Serra be the first one to do it this time? Let’s all find out.

The two remaining bouts in the main event are for the Lightweight bout of Sean Sherk versus Evan Dunham and between Melvin Guillard versus Jeremy Stephens. Great fighters facing each other would definitely define an awesome UFC 119 event. It would be aired live on Spike TV and ESPN UK as usual on September 25th.
