I loathe Rory. Like, almost as bad as I loathe the Diaz brothers and Bisping, but I think he gets the win here.

Ellenberger clips him in round one, Rory takes the last two dominantly.

Rory 29-28 maybe with a 29-27 thrown in there.

End of the day, I'm not interested in seeing anybody with questionable cardio ( eg Ellenburger ) go against GSP. If you cant go 5 hard rounds, then you don't deserve the chance.

Even if he was to somehow beat Rory and GSP, the last thing I ever want to see is a champ looking like shit in rounds 4 and 5 of a title defence.

What I want to know is if Rory doesn't want to fight GSP then why is he even in the welterweight division?

I think he's trying to pad and improve his record and his skills before GSP retires, which in my opinion could be after the Hendricks fight, or one fight after. I think he wants to break Silva's record for most title defenses and then call it a career.

Definitely going to be an explosive fight.

Rory on paper is a more well rounded fighter, BUT I just don't see him winning a SD/UD. I think Ellenberger comes in and hurts him early and will finish with a TKO.

Jake has mack truck power for a ww and if his cardio is in line, he can pose a threat to any top 5 guy.

Rory will decision Ellenberger, I say he'll decision him because Rory is too chickenshit to put the foot on the gas in big fights.

Can't believe Ellenberger is leading this poll. Rory is almost a 2.5 to 1 favorite. Rory is technically better everywhere with more cardio.

I hope I am wrong, but Berger isn't in Rory's league. And relying on power vs. a technical guy like Rory with a great camp of people to gameplan the power; isn't the best of situations.

And I am not Rory fan at all.
