Ellenberger: I’d be better at killing mastodons

Friday, May 03, 2013

Jake Ellenberger is 8-2 in the UFC and is coming off an impressive TKO of Nate Marquardt. The welterweight contender meets Rory MacDonald at the next UFC on FOX event, and a win could put the winner as the number one contende,r or at least in a bout for number one contendership. Ellenberger is more than ready to fight MacDonald and considers the two cut from a different cloth

“We’re two different species,” Ellenberger recently told ESPN.com. “He’s a Cro-Magnon; I’m a Neanderthal. We have different bone density, power, pure instinct, savagery. 

“He’d be better at cleaning caves; I’d be better at killing mastodons.” 

“If [St-Pierre] and Hendricks doesn’t happen next, then I think Hendricks and me are going to decide who’s going to be the next No. 1 contender,” Ellenberger said.
