SIIIIIIIIIIIIICK!

I know after Sunday I shouldn't even say anything.... But it really is nice to have a free card with a fairly big main event.

Agree ^^^.

Wouldn't be surprised at all if Melvin vs some decent lightweight is the Co Main event.

Can't imagine Melvin not being on this card.

I'd route for Ellenberger but would put my money on Jake easy.

I am actually bummed that Story isn't going to fight him.....I thought that Ellenberger would like to have that rematch.

Ellenberger will dictate where the fight is played out with his wrestling and superior striking en route to an easy decision or knockout. Surprised Jake is a favorite...based on what exactly? his jitz? on jakes sherk-like neck? not happening

This should be a pretty interesting fight if Shields comes to fight. Ellenberger always leaves it in the cage. I think Shields shpould be able to work takedowns using Ellenbergers own agressiveness against him. Once it's on the ground shields will dominate and win by later sub or decision.

That said I like Ellenberger as a fighter though. I will route for him to keep it standing and land some bombs!!
