UFC Quick Quote: Ryan Bader is a better fighter after losses to Jon Jones and Tito Ortiz

via www3.pictures.zimbio.com

"It's MMA. It's a crazy sport. I gotta go back to the drawing board. It was actually great for me to change some things up and I'm better for it. I don't know if I would have done that if I would have kept on winning so I'll be a better fighter because of it in the long run and in this fight coming up but yeah, had two losses and gotta come back strong. Just using it as fuel for the fire and I have been."

-- Raise your hand if you almost completely forgot about Ryan Bader. Actually, don't, because no one will see you raising your hand and you'll look stupid sitting in front of your computer with your hand raised. Seriously, put your hand down. Anyway, Mr. Bader went from potential title challenger to "that guy that got beat down by Jon Jones and Tito Ortiz" in the span of just a few short months. What's he been up to in the meantime? Simply training and using that adversity to grow and make himself a more complete martial artist, of course. That's what he's saying, at least, but is that what we'll be seeing when he attempts to end his 2011 run of futility against Jason Brilz at UFC 139 on Nov. 19 in San Jose, California? Hear more from "Darth" about his upcoming return, as well as his plan for his opponent, after the jump.
