In the short run, yea. Simply winning is good enough. In the long run, not so much. I guarantee you he lost a good portion of his bandwagon tonight. All that momentum he had from the Penn fight is gone and if Hendricks beats GSP, he's not getting the shot anymore. He'll have to put on a ridiculous Maynard/Fitch kind of streak before he gets a shot if he keeps fighting like that.

No Jake did nothing Jake spent the whole fight waiting for a shot or a chance to counter punch. Jake could have shot the TD for the last 30 seconds and tried to get a dec win but he didn't he stood there looking the fool. Rory was able to out box the smaller slower Jake who didn't belong in the octagon with Rory in the first place.

If I'm Nick Diaz I'm blowing up Dana's phone to get the next crack at Ellenberger because Ellenberger showed once again he's a one trick pony that doesn't belong at the top the division.

GSP does this every fight and makes 8 million.

The thing is Ellenberger amazingly enough is still a hack on the mat and Rory was about to sweep him and take his back before the fight ended.

Rory had nothing to worry about at all. Jake has no weapons other than power with his short arms.

I love that everyone is forgetting that jab that kept snapping Ellenberger's head back, that makes it slightly harder to come forward and throw bombs.

Some people don't understand that question.

Read thru this thread, and you will begin to understand.
You must be smart, the system won't let me up your rep until I spread it around some more.

Rory made Jake look like an amateur.

When you face a fighter whose weapons are decent wrestling and a one punch knock out, then the obvious answer is to jab your way to a victory (assuming you are talented as Rory.)

The answer to that is to be more well rounded .. which means the sport will evolve, rather than stagnate ... maybe what is needed is another organization where they outlaw the jab, wrestling, grappling, and walking backwards for the 'fans' who refuse to allow the sport to evolve.

For those who don't like reality, then I suggest they don't bother watching the GSP/Hendricks fight because you just saw the blueprint.
