Ryan Bader hoping to get back in August.

Ryan Bader recently was forced out of his fight with Glover Teixeira after suffering a knee injury earlier this year.

Now he is now targeting a return to action in August:

“Hit some light squats for the first time, knee is feeling better,” Bader said. “August maybe. Nothing official but I will be ready then.”

Would have to say his injury came at a good time as him and wife Daisy just had there 2nd child a beutiful baby girl.

Bader has came back from a loss last year to defeat Vladimir Matyushenko via submission in January. He is 3-1 in his last four fights, while all three of his career defeats have come from Jon Jones, Lyoto Machida, Tito Ortiz.
