I am obviously a huge fan of mixed martial arts. I devote a crazy amount of time to watching fights and following the daily developments of the MMA world. But even as a fan of the sport it is hard to appreciate the second and third rounds of the UFC 126 fight between Jake Ellenberger and Carlos Eduardo Rocha.

In the first round Rocha managed to get a takedown and move to side control where he dominated the round from side control. There was a brief moment where the fight was almost finished in an americana submission but Ellenberger survived. The second and third rounds were fought standing up with neither man doing much in terms of effective work. Ellenberger would occasionally land punches while Rocha would throw wild shots that tended to miss. In both rounds Ellenberger scored late takedowns to make a case for winning the round.

 this, round 1 or 2.

Rocha was having problems with Kris Mcray. Jake is a different monster.

I don't understand why this fight was put together. Ellenberger needs to fights guys like Story, Pierce, Hathaway...

I assume it is to raise Ellenberger's hype even more.

If he wins this in brutal fashion, he can coheadline a lower level PPV against a guy like Rick Story (Perhaps a European card)or headline a UFN

that sit out he did off the first td is kinda like shooting, waiting for the sprawl to pull guard but one step better if you can take the back or put the other on his back. Its a pretty common wrestling tech but would be a good one for BJJers to use....just like the guard pull to single leg.
