I'm not looking forward to it...both are great fighters...but holy hell how will this NOT be a decision? If I could be all my fantasy money on just "decision" regardless of who wins, I would.

Maybe I'll be wrong, but I predict boring



some of my favorite fights have gone to decision

Excellent fight in my opinion both of these guys are top notch fighters and I expect them to clash. I can see both of these guys scoring a TKO win or a UD but, I'm leaning towards Ellenburger for the win just not sure how yet!!

Decent match, this card was looking bad for a while.

Is it just me or does anyone else not care about this? Any WW fight without GSP is uninteresting. And even then its just fun cause of how bad he outclasses guys. That and the patriotic factor

Well I have NO loyalty to whiteys over Brazilians etc.

And this is very interesting because of the action. Both guys are unlikable, both guys have excellent finishing ability.

America is too much about politics and rankings. I miss the days when Wanderlei was fighting 6 times a year because he could. You wont get the greatest performances that way but you get guys going out there and just fighting to fight.

If the UFC would bring in cro cop and not try to hypnotize people into believing hes relevant it would have been a lot better. I miss watching old ass Don Frye fight irrelivant fights just because people want to watch him.

While I can't say that it is just you, I can say that I find the welterweight division to be highly entertaining. Guys like Hendricks, MacDonald, Alves, Penn, Condit, Silva and Ellenberger are all very entertaining fighters to watch, and I'm sure I missed others as well.

Not to mention they have a lot better of a chance of dethroning GSP than the very talented likes of DAN HARDY, BJ Penn, Jon Fitch, or Nick Diaz for that matter

Is this a troll account? Any WW fight with GSP is only good for the opportunity of 'his boringness' being exposed.

I am super excited for this fight. Kos is an old favorite and Jake is a new one. I think JAke wins a DEC because no-one wants Kos VS GSP 3

Weak co-main event in my opinion.
