UFC 139: Ryan Bader Gets Back on Track, Knocks Out Jason Brilz

Ryan Bader beats Jason Brilz at UFC 139.Ryan Bader is back.

Bader, the former Ultimate Fighter winner who suffered two high-profile losses this year, had a great knockout win over Jason Brilz at UFC 139 on Saturday night.

"Losing sucks. I was glad to get this win," Bader said afterward.
Bader had lost to Jon Jones in February and then was on the wrong end of a huge upset against Tito Ortiz in August. But he made it look easy against Brilz: One hard right hand to Brilz's ear connected, and Brilz went down like a sack of potatoes. Brilz was out instantly and the referee quickly stepped in before Bader could do any further damage to him on the ground.


For Brilz, the loss is a huge disappointment. Following his 20-second knockout loss to Vladimir Matyushenko, Brilz has now lost by knockout in less than a minute twice in a row, and he hasn't won a fight in more than a year and a half overall.

For Bader, the win is a major relief. He needed this one, and he delivered in a big way.
