I think McDonald is very talented but his best wins were against Diaz(LW) and Penn(past prime LW). Ellenberger has fought a lot of the top guys and his striking has increased dramatically 2 go along with his wrestling. I think Ellenberger takes this and wouldn't be surprised if he finished rory. I'm putting a lot of money on Ellenberger. Phone Post 3.0

Rory has only ever faced one guy who is even relevant. Ellenburger has faced much better competition and the line is usually set at a point to bring in money.

I think its a closer fight than the line though.

I would put some money on Rory at those odds.

Caliber of fighters Rory has fought isn't as impressive as Jakes but.. I believe the betting line is about right.

Its Rory's time, and he'll show us all why, against Jake. Phone Post 3.0

I'd put some money on Ellenberger in this one.  McDonald has looked good against mid-range competition, but he may be exposed in this one.

Not surprised. I think guys like Rory are the future and I favor him in this matchup.

That said, Ellenberger's power is the great equalizer in this fight.

Btw, people talk about how Jake has beaten top competition while Rory hasn't. Who exactly has he beaten?

Shields is his only top 10 win, and we've found out that Shields was overrated. He had a chance to score a top 10 win against Kampmann, but got KTFO.

Edit - Lol, for some reason I totally forgot about the Marquardt fight. Derp. That was a very impressive win.

When Rory first burst on the scene I was a huge fan, then he became a pretty boy, gave himself a new nickname and sorta became a giant douche

Still have nasty backne too

War Ellenberger! Phone Post 3.0

Haha, yes the Marquardt KO was brutal. I think people are just giving him the edge in experience here.. Even though he's lost some, he's been in there with the likes of Condit, Kampmann, Shields, Diego, etc. he has more experience in high level competition and that could be the difference here.

Not sure why Rory gets so much hype. I can see Jake rocking him and then him diving at Jake's legs for the next 14 minutes. Che Mills rocked his cocky ass in the first 20 seconds of their fight. If Che would have had any type of ground skills or take down defense, he would have put Rory away in the 1st round. I don't think Rory has the hands to hang with Jake, and his takedowns arent good enough to get Ellenberger down.

Not a fan of either, but I'm looking forward to seeing Jake give Rory a reality check. Phone Post 3.0

Rory's a better rounded fighter. Jake's the better physical fighter. This is a very intriguing match. I lean towards rory by sub or decision. I think Ellenberger's going to be loading up on his punches too much and will find himself out of position a lot. Phone Post 3.0

What the hell has happened recently to make you think Rory will sub Jake? Just curious. And Jakes striking is alot more technical than it used to be, watch the Marquardt fight. Phone Post 3.0
