UFC welterweight competitor Jake Ellenberger is willing to give Tyron Woodley credit for his win over Carlos Condit, and certainly does not think he is worthy of a title shot with a win at UFC 174.

For once I'm actually rooting for Rory to win.

Woodley, how dare you injure the most exciting fighter in MMA! And to practically say "Oh yeah I meant to do that"...

Rory and Tyrone are both undeserving of a shot. The winner of their fight is going to be one of the weaker challengers at Ww. They should go 've the winner of their fight another fight before a title shot.

They are like the only two left! Rory beat a ranked opponent, Maia. Tyrone "beat" a ranked opponent, Condit. Hector had an almost nice win against Shields until he gassed after the first round so Dana doesn't like that. Ellenberger (who hasn't won a fight since March 2013) is fighting Lawler, the guy who just fought for the title and barely lost.

The only other person is Matt Brown. Hendricks vs Brown sounds fun until Hendricks ruins the fun by taking him down for points (like his fight with Condit).

When Woodley destroys Rory I think everyone will agree that he deserves a title shot!

I agree with this. I think its obvious though Ellenberger is trying to downplay that fight in hopes he can KO Lawler and say "I KOd the guy Hendricks went to hell and back with, pick me!" Even though after that shit show with Rory I think both have more to do then just their next fight. That was probably the worst fight I ever saw. I'd rather watch a Jake Shields or Ben Askren career marathon before I rewatch Jake vs Rory.

That's why best case scenario Woodley puts a beating on Rory and gets the next shot.
