***OFFICIAL*** Jake Ellenberger vs. Rory MacDonald Thread
 
Welterweight bout: 170 pounds

Rooting for Ellenberger but I see Macdonald taking this one. I think MacDonald is better conditioned and is slightly better overall, I expect MacDonald to eventually take over the fight if he doesn't from the beginning. I think Ellenberger's only solid chance is to win by KO and I hope he does.

So, who will have the strength advantage in this fight? Ellenberger is a juggernaut obviously, but Rory seems to be getting stronger every fight. I expect Ellenberger to have the strength advantage up until the later rounds. I can't wait for this one.

Rory by SD.

I think Jake hurts him early, but then he whethers the storm and dominates the fight late to get the decision. However, aI think Cecil Peoples will score the fight 30 - 27 Jake, so it will come down to a split.

This is a better fight than a Condit rematch but Rory should still win.

most relevant fight on the card imo

will be good to see which one of these guys is the real deal

i hope they go for it

i cant pick it either, so much to be learned from this fight. i just want the more aggressive guy to win

I thin Ellenberger will take this. I can see him coming in looking like a monster, with improved cardio, and hopefully some improved top control. Though clearly not counting out Rory, this is a pretty even fight if you ask me, I see Ellenberger holding the title within a year

I think Rory mops the floor with Jake. Ellenberger needs to land something flush early to have a shot in my opinion. Otherwise I see him getting beat in every area.

I like Rory, dislike Ellenberger. Hope it goes the way it has to.
