Remember that time Jake was on an incredible winning streak, then went five rounds with one of the pound for pound best in the world in a losing effort? No? Hmm...He is clearly too dangerous to have earned a fight with the number one contender or the champion, that must be it!
Got to give Jon credit for taking another fight on shorter notice... Condit is very dangerous...
while I still think its debatable who is better between Condit/Ellenburger, Condit is higher ranked... so it makes sense for Jon.
id like to see Jake take on Rory next... I want to see what Rory does when he has trouble getting his opponent down.. and that opponent has big power, and good technical striking... Jake has come a long way with his standup.
I think both guys have a fairly even chance at winning, but if I had to pick, I think Condit takes it. He's too well rounded and capable of finishing guys in later rounds.
But this is MMA and crazy shit happens all the time, so who knows.
Not surprised for a fighter to say something like this. Even though I think Hendricks is the #1 contender I still think Condit is the second best WW in the world and is far more dangerous than Ellenberger is.
Ellenberger has always come off as slightly cocky as a fighter.
he is def saying it in a styles match up. HE has big ko power where condit, isnt a big ko striker. I still think condit mercs hendricks, and IMHO fuck ellenberger.
I don't give this any credibility. But I have to admit I don't understand why their fight got changed when it didn't have to. I see no problem in throwing Marquardt to fight Condit, they both just lost in a title fight.
The only reason I see is that Condit/Rory was a big name fight for the co-main and I think Condit/Hendricks carries the same sort of relevance to the casual fans.
Hendricks has a better chance of taking Condit down if he needs too. I get where Ellenberger is coming from, and I don't think he is saying he is better than Condit. I think it more of a styles thing.
