    Only thing Jake has on Rory period is KO power, If Rory fights smart should be a cake walk.
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    Yep, this is going to be another set back for Jake. Rory has all the tools to win this one.

    Excellent fight. Should be a fucking brawl.

    IMO, if he can stave off the first half power shots and neutralize him by fighting long, Rory fights far more intelligently and has the more complete game to couple with his size advantage against the stocky juggernaut. I think he takes it.

    I would also just like to take a minute to remind everyone that Rory looks like Hitler in this picture...




    Not really relavant but I still find it hilarious

    I hear Rory and Gsp train on opposite ends of the gym now. I wonder how many fights away that would be.

    I think Jake also has the edge in speed and footwork. Should be a great fight.

    Shit just got real! I was hoping for Condit but Ellenberger is a close second. Either way Rory vs a bonafide a top ten opponent means I'll definitely be hitting this show live! Hopefully British Columbia will represent a little better this time around!

    Rory's going to Ali shuffle his way to a dominant unanimous decision.

    Ellenberger is crazy athletic for a stocky guy. Very powerful and also accurate, I think he surprises many in this fight.
