Berger has questionable cardio. And his win over Shields is a little bit of a different story than when Henderson fought him. Henderson was hurt, cut weight at 40 something and fought Shields when Jake was at the top of his game. Since then Jake has dropped to a weight class that seems to hurt him and had just been through two shit fights. Not to mention his dad died less than a month beforehand.
Ellenberger is legit, but I would see Hendricks outlasting him in an early slugfest and winning in the late rounds.
