Jake Ellenberger: Stupid fighters want wars

source: facebook.com

Jake Ellenberger recently posted his theory of fighting on facebook.

I love how so many fighter say, I just want a war. I just listened to a guy who got a quick knockout and then said, I would have rather had a long war.

Are you stupid???

I like short fights. If every fight could be quick, I'm more than happy with that, but unfortunately it's rare. "I just want a war", or "I love getting hit" Really stupid?? Because I don't.

Thats why I train, to not get hit & not take damage. This sport is no longer a "tough-man" competition, its a stratigic equation, and most of the time, the more intelligent fighter wins. I dont know about you, but I dont want my brain to be used as a speed bag.

Ellenberger is most likely just butt hurt that Dana came out saying the outcome would likely have been different if it went an extra 2 rounds.When you make an announcement saying it was a mistake to not make all main events 5 rounds, RIGHT after a fight which saw Jake slow in the third, I could see how people would think he believed the outcome may have been different.

Some fighters main purpose is to entertain the fans while sone feel winning is and should be the only thing matters... Just depends on the outlook. You can make an argument for either.

 What did he say that was wrong? I don't see what is wrong with what he said in anyway.

Sorry Matt I mean no disrespect to you, I'm especially not here to argue with actual fighters just other fans. I'm speaking in general terms as a result of Diaz vs. Condit. Nothing more, nothing less. I guess this was a bad thread to do it in. I actually haven't seen any Ellenberger fights except for the Diego one.Just looked at your record, I see you finish fights all the time. I'll try and find some videos of your fights.Anyway, take care man. I hope you make it to the really big show some day.Peace.

Nice, cheap shot at Condit there.... The guy finishes almost every fight until he gets the chance at the interim title and fights the smart fight and he's humiliated.... Haha, more like he took full advantage of the opportunity in front of him.... Something that Diaz could have done by adapting his strategy in fight or something as simple as not failing a drug test....Anderson... I do know what the point he was trying to make is but what I am saying is that since those fighters time the sport has evolved.... Maybe I should have worded it better... Chuck would cry if e finished a guy early, well there's a part example Chuck Liddell.... Took a ton of abuse his career and fortunately his fame has lead him to live comfortably after fighting... My opinion I don't think Ellenberger will be any where near as popular as Chuck was/is, so for him to have this thought process makes sense doesn't it....

How about training to finish your opponent? Really? Did you see him fight Jake Shields?
