Rory MacDonald ready to make Jake Ellenberger his first Top 10 victim - Five Ounces of Pain | RM Sports

“As far as what he said about me not beating anyone in the Top 10, it’s true. I haven’t beaten the caliber of fighters who are Top 10 or the guys he has beaten,” admitted MacDonald to Alchemist Radio when asked about some recent trash-talk from Ellenberger. “I’m a young guy and trying to work my way up into that position. This is what I’ve been working for. I’ve been knocking guys out, submitting guys and dominating them.”

“Now I’m here fighting guys in the Top 10, I’ve been climbing the ranks,” he continued. “Unfortunately for him, he’s going to be the first guy in the Top 10 that I’m going to have to take out. As far as what he said about my skills being average at best, I just think ignorance is bliss. He’s going to have a big eye opener on that night.”
