2. He lost to Martin Kampmann and it wasn't a decision he was finished. He put up a good first round but he was done after four minutes.
3. His fight with Diego was great, but Diego had him in full mount at the end and the officials could have called it.
Yet you rank him at #5 ahead of Koscheck and Diaz who lost controversial decisions to Condit/Hendricks. You've got him ahead of Martin Kampmann who beat him, of Demian Maia who beat three arguably better opponents. For me now that Bisping's done he's the most overrated fighter in the UFC today. But I would really like to hear for someone who obviously believes in this guy why he's top five.
Dude, I hate Ellenberger but he is fighting Hendricks right now who is at the doorstep of a title fight, so regardless of what happened in the past year, he should be higher than Kampmann at the moment. Kammann lost in 0:46 seconds by a devastating KO and was out before even hitting the ground. I am sorry to say but that shot him down in the rankings.
