Ryan Bader Meets Anthony Perosh at UFC Fight Night 33 in Australia
Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports
Add another hometown boy to the mix when the UFC returns to Australia in December. The Herald Sun is reporting that light heavyweights Anthony Perosh and Ryan Bader have agreed to a matchup at UFC Fight Night 33.
Perosh has fought on three of the UFC's four previous trips to his home country. With a record of 2-1 fighting at home, Perosh was dominated by Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 110 but earned first-round stoppages over Tom Blackledge and Nick Penner in followup appearances.
The Australian fighter has competed inside the Octagon six times during his current stint and has yet to have a fight go out of the second round. Recently, Perosh rebounded from a seven-second knockout loss by delivering a 14-second knockout to jiu-jitsu wizard Vinny Magalhaes.
That's right. Two fights in 21 seconds.
Ryan Bader is also not a fighter who wastes much time once the cage door closes. Not only does The Ultimate Fighter winner own the record for fastest submission in light heavyweight history, but four of his past six fights have lasted less than three minutes.
Most recently, Bader competed in the main event of UFC Fight Night 28. Although he found early success against top contender Glover Teixeira, he was ultimately knocked out by his wobbled opponent.
A loss for "Darth" would be catastrophic for his career. Despite opening his UFC tenure with a flawless 5-0 record, the wrestler has dropped four of his last seven contests.
Headlined by a heavyweight battle between Mark Hunt and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, UFC Fight Night 33 takes place on Saturday, December 7 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Due to the time difference, the event will air in the United States on Friday, December 6.
