    Does he event want a title shot? I thought he was bff with GSP and didn't want to fight him for it. Anyhow, I guess he thought emulating GSP's fight with Koscheck might be good for a change.

    It truly was a disappointing fight.

    Agreed. That fight was 50% of my reasons for watching this card.

    Still, I blame Ellenberger more than Rory Mac. Jake knew he was losing - he should have been the one upping the intensity.

    He wants a title shot as soon as GSP is no longer champ.

    I think Rory has really fallen victim to the conservative fight mentality of Jackson/Tristar gyms. Its dissappointing.

    i think he was actually a bit intimidated by ellenberger. that dude got some big shoulders.

    i didnt mind that fight. not the most exciting thing ever but basically a clinic on how to use a jab to shut someone down. if you want to blame someone for making it boring blame ellenberger. if you are losing its up to you to make something happen, not the guy smacking your face.
