This matchup was brought up in Trevail's WW Tournament Sidegame. I was curious how the rest of the site saw this fight playing out.

I was one of the ppl who took Jon Fitch.

I personally think he got caught in his last fight and could beat Hendricks 9 out of 10 times. I feel Ellenburger needs a tko/ko win to beat Fitch and I dont believe he can do that. I could be wrong though really close fight in my opinion.

Styles make fights. I chose Ellenberger ko/tko.

Ellenberger has arguably the strongest punching power in the WW division and the wrestling to keep the fight standing the majority of the time. If this fight goes to a decision Fitch wins it but I think Ellenberger will grow from the Diego fight and he'd be ready for Fitch.

Fitch doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell.

IMO, Fitch and Ellenberger are similar fighters with similar attributes and with that in mind, I would go with the younger fighter, Ellenberger.

Later on this year, I think we will see Ellenberger vs Hendricks for the number one contender spot - provided they beat their opponents in the their next bout which I am confident they will.

I would take fitch, even more so in a 5 rounder. Burger looked great against Sanchez, but for about 8 minutes. Then he lost his range, got taken down, and could have been finished if sanchez was either fresher or a much better finisher than he is.

I pick Fitch, but Ellenberger is one of my favorite fighters (probably my favorite current fighter).

Fitch got tagged but he's very underrated because of how he tends to stick to the gameplan. I think he would find a way to beat Ellenberger.
