Ellenberger: MacDonald made ‘stupid decision’
Rory MacDonald and Jake Ellenberger are both looking to make a step in the right direction towards a title when they step into the Octagon at the UFC on FOX 8 event. And there certainly is no love loss between the two as Ellenberger indicated in his recent interview with MMAJunkie:
“I haven’t said anything that wasn’t true,” he told MMAjunkie.com. “My message to Rory is pretty clear: Pick some flavors of baby food and find one that you like and stock up, because this isn’t a ‘Tears for Fears’ lookalike contest. All I said was, ‘Prepare for some horizontal television time,’ and I meant it.”
MacDonald was at the root of a shakeup that prompted Ellenberger to take a bout with Nate Marquardt instead of a more attractive matchup with Hendricks at March’s UFC 158.
But Ellenberger said it’s less about the opponent, and more about the offense of agreeing to step into the cage.
“I’m an evidence-based abuser,” he said. “I didn’t make him make this stupid decision to fight me. I’m just going to make him look stupid when I destroy him.”
