I would say McFedries has more power as that fight was at 185 but I appreciate your point. I don't feel he is as accurate as Daley or as powerful as Marquart( again at the time a 185er). If Ellenberger catches him clean for sure he can put him out but I think Kampmanns technique is superior and I'd be dumbfounded if Jake was able to get the plum on him to work knees.Either way it will be a good fight but I feel like the matchup is off in terms of career progression. Ellenberger wins he almost hast to get a shot but if Kampman wins? Then what?

I've always picked Kampmann since his first fight in the UFC.... got him in this one as well.

I can see that, but if I had to compare Ellenberger's power to a previous Kampmann opponent, I would see this fight going more like Kampmann vs Daley, or Kampmann vs Marquart.  Ellenberger has BIG power

Tough fight for me to call as I'm a fan of both. I think they both play into the other's weakness.If you put me in a kimura, I'd say Hitman.

No sir, I am in no way shape or form comparing Mcfedries and Ellenberger. As I said my statement was more about the power aspect and how Kampman weathered the storm in that particular fight. Beyond Ellenberger being far more succesful their fighting styles aren't even similar.

You're comparing McFedries, who went 4-5 in a weak MW division against gatekeepers, to Ellenberger, who is 6-1 in a stacked WW with 2 top 10 wins and his only UFC loss being a controversial split decision to the current interim champ?LOL fren, thanks for the laugh

I could see this fight going somewhat similar to Kampman v Mcfedries.Not that Jake and Drew are similar fighters at all but just that they both have good power which Kampmann could/did weather and than either lock in a sub or pick him apart on the feet.Great matchmaking though! Definitely like this fight and it will answer a lot of questions about both guys. Kinda wish Hendricks v Ellenberger would have been made instead of their current matches though.

Kampmann's last two losses were to Shields and Sanchez. Ellenberger just rolled up both those guys...just sayin.DERP DERP DERP Yup. Agreed.

 The winner should get the interim interim title belt since the actual interim champ isn't fighting any time soon.
