It is not MacDonalds fault. UFC matched the wrong guys up.
What happens if you match up 2 guys where one guy
- has the range
- the techniqal superiority
while the other guy has
- KO power without being a brawler
and where neither guy can dominate the fight on the ground ?
This could then happen. Ellenberger did not press forward. He did not even try to fight for controlling the octagon.
