    Ellenberger wont want to go to the ground and won’t be scared to engage either. He will try to knock him out and I Think he will.

    Shields via UD maybe a guillotine….Ellenberger is a sick fighter for sure but Shields has a solid chin and great Bjj should be enough to win

    Shields took Hendo’s right hand n didn’t get KO’d even tho Ellenberger hits hard I dont think he’ll be able to stop Shields

    Let me make this easy for you. Shields will take Ellenberger down, maintain top position for the entire fight, and if Ellenberger makes the slightest mistake he will tap him immediately. It’s Shields’ fight to lose.

    I like Ellenberger,but he’s talking a lot for a guy who hasn’t beat a top 10 fighter.

    Wow, this is a brutal main event. They’d better stack that card with Strikeforce-style matchups of guaranteed destruction because that’s going to be 25 minutes of snores and a 50-45 for Shields :/

    Ya that is a strong possibility. He may lay and pray for five rounds but Ellenberger has solid wrestling. I’m not sure how his td defence is
