Ellenberger and Hendricks are virtually the exact same fighter lulz. Two college boy wrestlers with limited boxing technique throwing hay-makers.

You could throw Koscheck in there too, but at least Josh has some flair and charisma at least.
Your ability to even process what you are watching is comical.

Typical Tapout shirt wearing obnoxious bar goer who claims to be a "UFC fan".

The difference is they have character, flair, they all have their own unique traits which make them stand out as an MMA fighter.

Jon Jones with his sick trips and vicious elbows. Velasquez with his relentless, ruthless ground and pound, Ortiz with his elbows and GNP from the guard position, Randy's legendary clinch work and dirty boxing. They all have character, they all have flair.

I'm just sick to death of these faceless, bland wrestle-boxers jumping straight from college because MMA is the cool thing to do for youngsters thinking they're going to be champion some day. They have nothing that makes them stand out, nothing for me to root for, they're boring, generic and seem to be over populating the UFC roster. I'm just tired of them.
Except Randy Couture is nothing more than an early version of say...Mike Pierce, and Ortiz an early version of MANY current fighters.

If you are talking about Jon Jones and Cain Velasquez, they are probably different because they happen to be elite fighters.

Carlos Condit hardly has any unique skills, yet you act like he's some kind of Godsend for MMA.

Same with Erick Silva.

Wow! A really fast aggressive guy with good kicking technique, never seen this before!!
