I like this fight way more than the Silva match. I'd rather see Silva slowly rise up the ladder, Pierce was too big a jump in competition imo. He should be fighting someone like Mike Pyle or TJ Waldburger.

Pierce is about to prove that he should be higher ranked than Ellenberger.

I don't really care too much for the standard wrestler in ww. They fight very similarly and I don't usually find their fights that exciting: Pyle, Pierce, Hendricks, Story, and sometimes Eberger and Sanchez, depending on who they're fighting. I expect pierce to win but would like Rocha to win.

This isn't an easy fight for Pierce at all. Rocha is a beast on the ground.
