BC = BobbyCooper. That's the kind of guy Khoveraki is, members like him shouldn't be on this forum.

Nope.
Read it *1,000* times.

Sounds better and better.

I'm really confident Ellenberger will beat Shields.

Sigbet? Shields beats him you have "WAR SHIELDS" in your sig. If Ellenberger wins (even by SD) I'll put anything in my sig. time limit, maybe a month?

Agreed!...but i'm keeping my Jon Jones Graphic Sig and you can keep your JDS Graphic Sig also.

Underneath it though - with big bolded letters i'm putting:

"WAR SHIELDS!"

If (after) Ellenberger wins, you're putting this in your sig:

"NOTHING CAN STOP THE JUGGERNAUT! WAR ELLENBERGER!"

Sounds good?! Or you want the graphic sigs gone?!

One month sounds OK!

And let's take this to the member bets section!

.



BELIEVE!

Sounds solid to me. I'm not even a big Shields fan but he's an incredible fighter and Ellenberger is nowhere near his level yet.

Take it to the member bets forum, I'll try to find my way there today.

This is me eating crow. I said -500. I'm seeing the line at -145 on pinnacle and +131 for Ellenberger.

That's much closer than I thought it'd be, making a value bet on Ellenberger less likely unless is changes drastically.

I recently watched Condit-Ellenberger, this is not an easy fight for Shields.

I disagree. I think this is one of the easiest stylistic matchups for Shields at ww.

Ellenberger has power in his hands but doesn't really set his punches up, he just sort of wings power punches and tries to knock his opponent's block off.

Against Condit, he was mounted 3 times, and had his back taken twice. Condit went for at least 6 subs that I noticed but sacrificed the position to go for them, which is why he lost the mount 3 times, and the back once.

Shields' JJ is far ahead of Condit's, and his top control is miles ahead of Condit.

Ellenberger also showed against Rocha something he showed against Condit, he doesn't react well to being outgrappled, and punched on the bottom. He will eventually go for the sweep, or buck and roll, but he tends to allow himself to be punched repeatedly before going for it.

Against the man Mayhem Miller refers to as "The Blanket" he won't get the sweep, and he won't KO the un-KOable chin of Shields.

I am really looking forward to the top 2 fights of the card, and even though most other fights on the card seem like a TUF reunion show it's going to be the best card I've been able to drive to in 3 years (UFC 88). Got a ticket this morning if anybody wants to stop by row F seat 10.
