Predict the outcome of Jake Ellenberger vs. Rory MacDonald from UFC on Fox 8. Who wins and how?
RICH HANSEN, MMATORCH COLUMNIST
Can I get away with a "Damned if I know?" No? Damn. Ok, how about Ellenberger by KO in the second? I think Ellenberger's power will keep MacDonald tentative, and he'll get blindsided by something once he gets impatient.
FRANK HYDEN, MMATORCH CONTRIBUTOR
I think Ellenberger takes MacDonald down and gets the TKO stoppage. It's a good fight between two up-and-comers, but I think Ellenberger wins here. I think he's got too much power. It should be a pretty good fight, and I think it's a close one, but I give the edge to Ellenberger.
BRAD WALKER, MMATORCH COLUMNIST
I have a very difficult time thinking that Ellenberger won't win this fight. On the other side I have a very hard time thinking that MacDonald won't win this fight. In the end I am going to pick Jake Ellenberger to take home the win with a huge sudden knockout and step into the next title fight.
ERIC HOBAUGH, MMATORCH CONTRIBUTOR
Rory MacDonald will win this one. He is better everywhere except wrestling and that won’t matter. Ellenberger is a good fighter, but Macdonald is the future of the division. I am picking Rory MacDonald by third round TKO.
C.J. TUTTLE, MMATORCH COLUMNIST
I am the only person on the face of the earth that does not like Rory MacDonald as an MMA fighter whatsoever. He will win via decision, he will continue to dress like a douche and people will praise him as a prodigal son.
CAMERON LYMAN, MMATORCH COLUMNIST
We see big improvements from Rory "The Canadian Psycho" Macdonald every time he steps in the cage and Ellenberger is no slouch with his fists. I would like to think this fight stays standing and ends in devastating fashion. The thing that makes this match so intriguing is that I have no idea who will be left conscious at the end of it.
