GSP has hardly used wrestling in his last 4 fights... but somehow he is still a "human blanket". (I may remember the Diaz fight wrong...)

I dunno, I think Ellenberger should be able to shrug Rory off up until he gasses and Rory takes over (if this fight makes it passed the first round). Jake's strength and take down defense isn't bad at all when he's fresh. I could be wrong, but I can't imagine Rory out grappling Jake from the start. If you mean he's going to pressure him against the cage and what not, maybe, but they are both really strong guys so it will be interesting to see how that unfolds early on.

It's actually not not too bad. with Fitch gone, the only real guy with a dominant top game is GSP. Hendricks doesn't quite have it or Rory.

Edit: maybe DHK.

Hope Rory gets that psycho killer look off his face and learns a little humility, every fighter needs a humbling before he can be a great champion, it could definitely be this fight.

Ellenberger will gas and Rory will finish him. That's what I'm betting on anyway.

A lot of the pro's picked Ellenberger, but I don't think he'll beat Rory. I believe Rory is too technical and quick and will either get a late ground and pound TKO, or will win a clear cut decision.

So if I had to bet, i'd put my money on MacDonald.

But if it ends in the first round, it'll be by an Ellenberger KO.

2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

Jake took Machida's entrance music for inspiration.
