Rampage Jackson vs Ryan Bader UFC 144 fight video simulation in PRIDE mode

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson returns to the Saitama Super Arena in Japan this Saturday night (Feb. 25) at UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" to take on Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 8 Champion Ryan Bader.

While "Rampage" won't be fighting "Darth" inside a ring, that hasn't stopped the gang behind the UFC Undisputed 3 video game from running a "PRIDE mode" simulation. Over the span of 25 fights, Jackson stuffed 80-percent of the takedown attempts, won 14 times (with once soccer kick knockout) and scored 11 first round finishes.

To his credit, Bader recovered from being rocked almost 100 times.

When all was said and done, the video simulation had Jackson's hand raised in victory. But will life imitate art? We're just over 48 hours from finding out. See what the simulator said about the main event match-up of Frankie Edgar vs. Ben Henderson by clicking here.
