It was clear in this fight that Rampage is really a pure kick boxing MMA athlete. His deadly when it comes to punches but he could not mix it well with some leg kicks and other moves. And with this style Ryan Bader took advantage of that weakness. Ryan Bader also manages to take advantage of the weak legs of Rampage as he keeps hitting with his knee.

As Ryan Bader was successful in his take down attempts and played a ground and pound fight. And this drained all Rampage stamina and cardio. And after 3 rounds of the fight the judges declared Ryan Bader as the winner of the fight via unanimous decision. And this was the 2nd  back to back loss that Rampage has gained and the first time in his career.
