The Ultimate Fighter
The Force is Strong.
Ryan “Darth” Bader is regarded as a perennial light heavyweight contender in professional mixed martial arts. He made his debut in the MMA cage in 2007 and has notched more than 25 professional bouts, posting more knockout victories than losses over the course of his entire career. Bader claimed the title of the Season 8 Ultimate Fighter during the 2008 reality television show. Before training in combat sports, Bader was a back-to-back college wrestling champion at Arizona State University, developing stellar instincts on the mat that continue to provide an edge over opponents.
A master at his craft, Bader trains at and is co-owner of Power MMA and Fitness in Gilbert, Ariz., where his three-a-day workouts can include everything from weightlifting and cycling to technique drills and sparring. He has formed a team at Power that not only develops and strengthens his own fight game, but also helps instruct all levels through personal training and world-class youth programs. His grind embraces what it means to be STRONGER EVERYDAY™.
