This fight is pretty much even IMO since besides Fitch who he blasted early, Hendricks has not really had his way with wrestlers, Mike Pierce another good wrestler another tough fight for him. Notice a trend? Ellenberger is not being given enough credit here lets not forget him pasting Shields not that long ago either. Its a coin toss IMO.
You know who else lost to Rick Story, Jake Ellenberger.

Martin Kampmann was right when he said Ellenberger has many holes in his game. He might be a "wrestler" but his wrestling is kind of terrible. He got swept by Rocha, Sanchez, and Condit he really isn't in the same league as the top wrestlers in the division (Hendricks, Koscheck, GSP, Pierce, Simpson, Fitch). And his conditioning is so bad he gassed against Kampmann in the first round, Hendricks is a tough out.
