Ryan Bader, who on Saturday added the heavyweight belt to the light heavyweight strap he already owned, wants to remain with Bellator but is looking to negotiate a new contract. He said during an appearance on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show on Monday that in order for him to defend the heavyweight title, "I've got to be incentivized to stay up here and fight these big boys." Bader also said he'd welcome "big-name fights" at 205 pounds, naming Tito Ortiz and Chael Sonnen as potential opponents.
