Prediction: wrong Shields   wrong Decision  


I think Shields is gonna destroy Ellenburger, Shields is still the #3 WW in the world, and I think the only guys that will ever beat him will be Fitch and GSP, plus he has to win so we can see him fight Fitch

Right now I have Shields by decision but I would not be the least bit surprised if Ellenberger knocked his ass out.

Ellenberger is not ready for Shields. I think down the road Ellenberger will be a contender but right now Shields will get the best of him.

I would say knockout but Shields has an iron chin as Hendo proved... I just think Ellenberger can avoid the takedown for the most part and if he can avoid those crazy submissions of Rocha he can most likely avoid Shields...

Shields via decision, he's not getting nearly enough credit. He was able to take down and decision Hendo, Condit, Okami and he's got a solid chin with good recovery. If Hendo can't ko him w/ an H-bomb, Ellenberger ain't doin ****.

Ellenberger has one good thing going for him in this match up, his athleticism.

I've got Ellenberger at 7 right now. I think he'll be top 5 someday, but he hasn't faced anyone like Jake Shields. I think Kos would beat him at this point in his career as well. He only needs one loss to those guys before he really sees what its going to take to be top 5. 18 months from now i think Ellenberger fights for the title.

Jake Shields is a great fighter contrary to what GSP did to him. But then again its GSP. lol. Ellenberger is also very good but i believe Shields is just a different caliber fighter than ellenberger. Very interesting fight.
