Jake Ellenberger is scheduled to fight talented up and comer Rory MacDonald at the next UFC on FOX event in Seattle. Ellenberger has been tested against some of the divisions top welterweights, however MacDonald has not, a fact that Ellenberger feels will make the difference:
"This is a huge, pivotal fight for the welterweight division," Ellenberger said. "It can set the tone for the division going into the end of the year. It's a huge fight and there is no bigger place than on Fox. Then you factor in that I don't like him, and that should make it fun to watch. I just don't like him and it's something I'm definitely looking forward to.
"I love how much the media has pushed him, and that makes it better for me. They like to embellish this young kid. Rather than base things on his accomplishments, it's more about his potential. I really don't know why, to be honest with you. Rory is as fake as the food he is named after...there is a restaurant in Lincoln, Nebraska named Rory's.
"This is how this fight is going to go," Ellenberger offered in conclusion. "Buffer screams. Rory runs. Jake swings. Rory sleeps. Crowd screams."
