Ryan Bader Targets August For His Octagon Return

Ryan Bader was forced out of a key match with Glover Teixeira after suffering a knee injury earlier this year.

Now, the former Ultimate Fighter winner is targeting a return to action in August, as he told recently.

“Hit some light squats for the first time, knee is feeling better,” Bader said. “August maybe (for a return). Nothing official but I will be ready then.”

Bader rebounded from a loss last year to defeat Vladimir Matyushenko via submission in January. He is 3-1 in his last four fights, while all three of his career defeats have come at the hands of ex or current UFC champions (Jon Jones, Lyoto Machida, Tito Ortiz).
