Ryan Bader stepped on the scale in Brazil and weighed in at a ripped 205lbs, looking like he could tear the roof off a house with one arm.

However, all the physical gifts in the world won't make Chael Sonnen feel any better about 'Darth' Bader's odds of defeating Brazilian slugger Glover Teixeira in his hometown of Minas Gerais.

For all his accomplishments on The Ultimate Fighter 8, Bader has been unable to direct that success inside the Octagon. Chael Sonnen weighed in on Bader's shortcomings in the post-fight show, making some interesting points about how it could actually become an advantage to him in this fight.
