The Ultimate Fighter winner Ryan Bader (8-0) is expected to take on Carmelo Marrero (10-2) at UFC Fight Night 18 on April 1, according to FiveOuncesofPain.

Bader, an Arizona State University wrestling standout, will look to build off of his impressive TKO win over Jui-Jitsu phenom Vinicius Magalhaes at The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale.

This will be Marrero’s first time back in the UFC after being dropped from the orginization after losing two in a row to Gabriel Gonzaga and Wilson Gouveia at UFC 71.
