good fight. i like ellenbergers chances against hendricks. he's got tight boxing and great wrestling. he has a chance of nullifying hendricks game. i'll probably still pick hendricks to win, but this fight should be really exciting.

Coin Flip, both of these guys possess a bomb, I would say that Hendricks is the more lethal but I think Ellenberger is better technically and is the stronger fighter probably.

really surprised Hendricks took this fight, but at least he will be training and ready for a fight if something were to happen with Diaz

Hendricks supposedly to get title shot if he wins this fight, but I'm sure he'll have to wait in line once Sonnen is given the shot.

I wonder what the odds are of these three fights staying in tack are.

They should make this an all-welterweight main card and put like Koscheck, Brown, Hardy, or Kampmann on it and it would be pretty cool.

As far as this fight goes I see Hendricks all day both are huge power punchers with great wrestling but Hendricks has the cardio and a solid chin/beard which I see him helping get the KO !!
