Technicality is just a fancy word for boring and anti-finishing striking, the fight stunk and we didn't find out anything we didn't know already in the fight. Like how rory doesn't have amazing TDD and a bottom game which we already knew

We learned Ellenberger gasses standing still, maybe next time he can fight in a comfy chair.

Its hard to call yourself a professional fighter when both you and your corner have no answer to a guy who jabs and cuts angles for 15 minutes.

Other then that, what a boring fight!
Not true at all. GSP's is way better.

Sadly that's the vast majority of MMA fighters and Rory didn't even cut angles, he just backed straight up and raised his hands to deflect Jake's punches. it's really hard to watch, especially when you are a fan of one of the fighters.

It wasn't even technical though. he wouldn't throw anything after the jab nor would he make Jake pay for getting wild.

Pretty much. Everyone can trash Rory's performance as much as they want. Ellenberger never forced him to move to the next step. If you had an entire gameplan like when he starts slipping go to the body or whatever, what exactly are you supposed to do when the guy never starts defending or slipping.

I'm sure they planned something for when Jake started defending the jab but he just stood there and ate it. Why bother trying something else and getting caught if that's the case?

I told everyone here that Ellenberger is overrated. Rory didn't wow anyone, but it is easy to see Jake has very very average at best striking. He has power...cuz he throws hard...but vs. a technical fighter he has nothing. Jake KOs people so people tend to think he is better than he really is. His wrestling is very overrated as well. He isn't an elite wrester...he has wrestling like a Diego Sanchez has wrestling. Yea it is his background, but he isn't taking much of anyone with solid TDD down.

Elleberger is basically Ryan Bader. Maybe with less cardio and less wrestling.

And he took down rory when he was gassed which dispells the myth that rory s a wrestling phenom like GSP

Rory is defiantly no wrestling prodigy. Not sure why people think he is. He has solid wrestling. Perhaps he will refine it with time like GSP.

People just assume every time he fights he's gonna take you down and jon jones you and you can't take him down either. Pyle took him down, he was taken down by a gassed berger, I can't remember how condit got him to the ground and he couldn't take down a gassed penn for most of the fight.

I think Hendricks and GSP and Maia and a few others would have there way with him. Also ellenberger needs to adjust his fight iq by a lot and get a real fitness coach because he lacks in both areas a lot.
