Jake Ellenberger doesn't believe Rory is top 10

I agree with Jake on this subject. The only top 10 guy he's fought in the WW division is Condit and he lost that fight weather you believe he did or didn't.

Beating Mills, Penn(past his prime lightweight), Pyle, and Diaz (lightweight) doesn't really warrant him the number 3 ranking in the current WW division.

Do you guys think the Ellenberger/Macdonald fight will actually happen?

If so, who wins?

    I think Jake is going to TKO him. That should get rid of some of the unwarranted hype.

    He won't be saying that when he is on his back taking a beating.

    Hes not. Jake has wrecked guys that would wreck Roidy.

    Easy win for Jake and im not even basing that off his walkout song.

    If he comes out to Gangstas Paradise again Rory doesnt have a snowballs chance in hell.

    If that were the case he wouldn't be saying anything.

    If he's smart he be trying to get off his back.

    I think Jake is going to prove this dude is over hyped.

    Does anyone really think Roy is a contender? He's just a fun to watch gatekeeper, no shame in that. You could tell Kongo gave zero f***s that fight and he got cut for it.

    Jake is underestimating Rory's skill set. Rory may not be ranked higher than Jake, but he is the better smarter fighter.

    i don't think he is going to at all, rory was easily beating Condit up until that 3rd round and the bs stoppage. Can't see past a Rory win.

    The UFC actually has Rory ranked number 3 and Jake ranked number 4 which is retarded imo.

    If he was "easily" beating Condit he would of never gotten TKO'd.

    he was the first two rounds where all him, watch the fight again if you need to. Rory just took his foot of the gas in the 3rd, most likely due to fatigue and paid the price, it was a poor stoppage though.

    Jake thinks Rory is not even Top 10?. I disagree with that part. He is somewhere around Top 6 or 7. Jake is right that he has not been seriously tested though.
    Jake himself has not fought a top 10 and win. He lost to Condit and Kampmann. So it is like " Pot calling the Kettle black".
    It is not about win or lose, it is about heart. Leave all you have in the Octagon and you are a winner in my book.

    True. One can argue that shield is not a good measure though but you have a point.

    Rory is definately a top ten guy and may possibly be a champion one day. However, I do agree that he has not beaten enough quality opponents to warrant the type of hype he gets from some of his fans at this stage of his career.

    ITT: Article about an MMA fighter that has been possessed by the Jelly Monster, attempts to discredit a very, young, promising MMA fighter on the verge of superstardom and wealth. He does this in hopes to talk his way into a fight with the young Prodigy. But alas he will have wait until after the merciless beating of an MMA fighter/Interim Champion named Carlos Condit. By the hands of The Canadian Prince of the WW division.

    Sorry. I mistyped. Hopefully, this is more clear.
