Ryan Bader vs. Jason Brilz at UFC 139 in San Jose, California on November 19th

“Ultimate Fighter” season eight winner, Ryan Bader and fellow powerhouse wrestler, Jason Brilz will meet in a light heavyweight tilt at UFC 139 in San Jose, California on November 19th, 2011. The fight was made official by the Las Vegas based promotion earlier today via UFC.com, meaning both fighters have most likely signed official bout agreements.

Bader seen his five-fight winning streak come to an end earlier this year when he took on current light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones and was promptly submitted in the second round. This was followed by another loss, this time at the hands of Tito Ortiz, who made him tap in the first round.

Brilz is also looking to rebound from back-to-back defeats after controversially losing out to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in a fight many believe he should have won on the judges scorecards before getting swiftly knocked out in the first round, first minute by Vladimir Matyushenko.
