Accidentally voted Nate. Lol. Oops.

Jake will run through him I think. Nates not looked great lately.

Definitely wouldn't bet on this one, Jake likely takes it though.

I think this is a close fight. Marquardt looked good vs. Woodley at his debut at WW. But then lost to Saff....who we all may have underrated. Marquardt is still a good fighter, well-rounded.

I think Ellenbeger is a tad overrated. He is a poor man's Hendricks. His best win in his career is probably Jake Shields. Jake Shields who has looked like crap at 170 and had lost his father that week of the fight. Other than that he has beat Sanchez...Mike Pyle 3 years ago. He really doesn't have a signature win. No guys he has beat are still relevant anywhere at WW. Pyle may be a fringe top 10 guy at this point simply for his nice little win streak.

No clue who wins. I think people overrate Ellenberger though.

Jake is going to knock this cheater out, hopefully they cut Nate again when he loses.

Nate suffers from Kenny Florian syndrome, he chokes when it's all on the line but he could win this fight, Berger is a confused man ever since his fights with Kampmann and Diego where he faded. I still believe he can KO anyone at 170 though.

Nate by split.

This could be a really rubbish fight. I pick Ellenberger.

This is a really good match up if you ask me. Both fighters are strong and very explosive both in wrestling and striking. Marquardt has had a few bad performances in his career but has also had many great showings so I'm not gonna write him off because of his last fight. Ellenberger is very similar as he has had his share of bad performances as well. Hard to pick a winner here, I'm going with Ellenberger just because I feel he is the more powerful of the two though both fighters have the potential to win in devastating fashion and Marquardt is the more well rounded making it a very tough fight to choose a winner.

Very tough fight. On one hand we have Jake whom has lethal KO power, but seems to fade in the later rounds due to power punching.

Nate is a much better rounded fighter but he has to respect Ellenberger's power. If he mixes it up I have him winning a UD 29/28.

:thumbsup:

Cheater? Aren't you a Hendo fan?

Also give Stun Gun the winner
