Boring fight, don't really have much more than that to say about it. I've heard people say Rory is the next GSP, and now I know why.

Ellenberger has no heart, no cardio and no chance at ever being a real top five UFC WW and fighting for a title.
Rory literally did nothing. I'm all for technical bouts, but all Rory did is prove that he isn't the big bad wolf people think he is. He walked around throwing jabs and that was it. He never went for a finish. Never tried to hurt jake. Just pitter patter his way to a decision.

Going for the takedown was an awful strategy.

I'm literally blown away by how god awful Ellenberger looked, especially after talking all that garbage over the twitter machine. Seriously that was horrifying to watch.

"Is this a sport, or sports entertainment?"

Some people don't understand that question.

Read thru this thread, and you will begin to understand.

Yea, it would of been ok as a gameplan going in. Doing it with 50 seconds left and doing nothing was awful.

Rory's strategy didn't really surprise me. I'm more disappointed with Ellenburger. After all he said about Rory, I thought he would atleast try to take the fight to Rory earlier when things weren't going his way.
