Jbrahams Posted August 21, 2012 Report Share Posted August 21, 2012 Which guy are you more interested in seeing Ellenberger fight? I think Koscheck is done, really, he could retire now and not miss out on anything because lets face it, he will never be a No. 1 Contender and even though he can talk **** (difference between him and Chael is that Koscheck isn't faking it, he's actually a ******) and hype a fight, he is basically a gatekeeper at the moment. Hieron, who is less accomplished then Koscheck (and they're similar age so that's not any reason to argue between the two) could offer something different to the division, many people thought he beat the ultimate blanket Ben Askren who is widely considered around that Number 10 spot in the WW rankings worldwide so Hieron would have to be considered as a possible contender, especially with the chance to beat Jake Elleneberger. Sure it would have been great seeing two heavy handed wrestlers go at it, but Koscheck basically has the same skillset he has had for the last few years, power (yet very predictable) and strong wrestling, especially his double leg td. I just think with the background of Hieron being the first to defeat Ellenberger (albeit 6 years ago) it's a much more interesting fight and if Hieron wins it's better than if Koscheck won because I think it's safe to say not many people want to see him around the title anymore, Hieron is some (old) fresh blood in a stacked division. Just my thoughts, it might have been disappointing not to see Ellenberger fight someone like Bahadurzada or a bigger name technically, but Hieron is very skilled and poses a threat to most people at WW with his well roundedness (if that's even a word?)
