His last five wins are against top twenty guys, if you think he's "hype" than I don't think you have any understanding or appreciation for the word.

He's lost once to Rick Story is a tight competitive boxing match and that means Ellenberger is a stylistic nightmare to him? How? That makes no sense, frankly Kos and Pierce are better skilled fighters than Ellenberger. They have better wrestling, better cardio and are harder guys to finish.

To say he doesn't win impressively because he doesn't give Rory Macdonald beat downs to guys when in most cases he finishes is crazy.


Make the WW division great again

I think the diffrence right now between Hendricks and Ellenberger is mostly hype. Guess we will see.

I think you pretty much nailed it here. Dana (and UFC in general) knows he cannot trust these guys and the latest near crash when Nate didn't make weight for the championship main event, with his "professional" camp UNAWARE of it, did not help at all.

Sucks for Diaz. He gets to hang out with a bunch of nerds all fight week long.

Ellenberger for the win. won't bet on it though.

And no, Pierce and Kos are not more skilled Ellenberger, better cardio? yes.

Ellenberger is a tough fight for anyone, Hendricks could easily lose this. We have arguably the two hardest hitters in the division going at it.

It's actually a really even fight, Ellenberger is craftier than Pierce and Kos on the feet, his wrestling pedigree is similar to Pierce's.

I think the odds will force me to put some serious cash on Ellenberger.

This, people need to remember that Ellenberger stopped Jake Shields something that Hendo failed to get done and gave Carlos Condit everything he could handle. Jake is every bit the killer than Hendricks is and if Hendricks forgets for a second how good Ellenberger is and keeps worrying about GSP than Hendicks is gonna end up starring at the ceiling.
