Ellenberger predicts MacDonald fight: “Jake swings, Rory sleeps, Crowd screams”

jake-ellenbergerI believe the UFC’s welterweight division is the most loaded division in the UFC right now, and I’m not the only one. Some of the more intriguing fights on the upcoming schedule are in the 170 pound weight class. One of those is the fight between contenders Jake Ellenberger and Rory MacDonald next month.

Ellenberger is currently ranked 4th, while MacDonald is #3. Although “Aries” is currently riding a 4 fight winning streak, Ellenberger feels  most of his opponent’s momentum is based around media hype, and not actual accomplishments. He even threw out the F word regarding MacDonald—“fake.”

“This is a huge, pivotal fight for the welterweight division,” Ellenberger told Bleacher Report. “It can set the tone for the division going into the end of the year. It’s a huge fight and there is no bigger place than on Fox. Then you factor in that I don’t like him, and that should make it fun to watch.”

“I just don’t like him and it’s something I’m definitely looking forward to,” he continued. “I love how much the media has pushed him, and that makes it better for me. They like to embellish this young kid. Rather than base things on his accomplishments, it’s more about his potential. I really don’t know why, to be honest with you. Rory is as fake as the food he is named after…there is a restaurant in Lincoln, Nebraska named Rory’s.”

Well, I guess the official Jake Ellenberger viewing party in Lincoln WON’T be held there! Either way, Ellenberger went on to make his prediction for the fight.

“Buffer screams. Rory runs. Jake swings. Rory sleeps. Crowd screams.”
