Rory is going to fuck him up. Ellenberger is always going to be in the fight with his brain damaging one shot KO punch. If Rory is going to have him in the same positions that Diego did, this shit is going to look ugly. Beep.

how was he winning the fight against carlos when it was a 10-8 3rd, possibly 10-7? I think one of those first two rounds could be argued 10-10 too. Rory gets at best a 28-28 draw. Condit easily wins that fight by pride rules and rory wouldnt have answered a 4th round. I watched that live and was the only canadian standing and clapping for condit in a crowd full of people booing. Natural born killer!

I'm still mad at Rory for what he did to BJ, so I will be rooting for Jake in this one. Should be a great fight either way.

Do any of you guys use the eye ball test? Just watch these two guys, and how they kick the crap out of other fighters. Just using that test, not stupid MMA math, or this guy beat this guy 6 years ago blah blah blah, I think Rory will take this fight.
