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.

Ellenberger's an animal. Rory's unwarranted hype is legitimized if he beats Jake

His biggest wins are two 155'ers and BJ was past his prime

Yep.

It's ORIGINAL too.

Which is probably why the Sonnen fans aren't gushing over what a great talker Jake is. Phone Post

I have no idea how the fuck Rory is a -215 favorite here...

That he's such a big favorite shows that the hype for Rory is definitely out of control. I mean he's good, but this line is a joke.

Rory has beaten absolutely no WW of consequence. His best wins are LWs. I mean Rory is good, but he has not established himself whatsoever.

He's also never faced a wrestler. Against Jake, if Rory gets rocked, he won't have a safety net in terms of takedowns. A fresh Rory would be very unlikely to get Jake down, let alone a rocked one.

If anyone scores takedowns here, it will be Jake. Outside of that this will be a stand-up fight. And while Rory is slightly more technical, Jake is pretty technical too and has vastly more power.

One of the worst betting lines I've ever seen. Will definitely be making a big play on Jake here.

I like both guys. Too bad they have to kick the shit out of each other. Would probably rather Jake win so maybe he gets a title shot. We know Rory aint fighting GSP.

I admit to not reading/seeing a lot of Ellenberger interviews but this is the first time I've noticed anything of quality humor coming from him. Sonnen has been at it for years and talked himself into great opportunities. We'll see if Jake is able to do the same. If he's just starting out, its a great way to start though.

His biggest wins are two 155'ers and BJ was past his prime

He beat Mike Pyle, who's won 6 of his last 7 UFC fights and his only loss was to Rory.  Pyle has also finished his last 3 in the first round.  Che Mills was a good win too and he looked great against Condit when he was only 20 years old.  Also youre right about BJ and Nate being LW's, but he destroyed them and both have found success at 170


C'mon now...don't go trying to legitimize Rory's opponents after you've spent the last year or more badmouthing Nick's almost identical opponents.

Devils advocate much?!

Not gonna try to say you're wrong, cause I think you raise a good point, but I think one has to take into account that Rory is a much younger fighter than Diaz and is improving a ton. Diaz is much the same fighter as he has been the last 5 years or so. Maybe a bit better with the TDD though.
