The Rory MacDonald vs. Jake Ellenberger fight generated a lot of excitement leading up to UFC on FOX 8 with the trash talk and fact that this was two of the top fighters in the UFC’s welterweight division. Unfortunately for the fans, the fight did not deliver as expected.
MacDonald was able to use his clear technical advantage to jab away Ellenberger and keep him on the edge, while Ellenberger sat back and never did much of anything. In the end, MacDonald was able to outpoint Ellenberger and set himself up for a potential title shot, that he has no interest in taking because he doesn’t want to fight his dear friend Georges St-Pierre.
