Jake was too passive, and played right into Rory's hands. Boring fight, but Rory had the right gameplan. Poor performance all around from Jake.

Well that was a bust. Rory was doing merely enough to probably win the fight. No clue what Ellenberger's plan was.

Not the most exciting thing to watch, but it's effective (Rory using his footwork & keeping his distance with Jabs.) But it did look like both were having trouble closing the distance when they wanted to.

Still a good fight. Don't listen to the crowd.

It was a boring fight even from a technical point.

ellenberger a lot smaller than rory... as a student of fighting i do understand his reasons for caution against the guy with better reach, gas tank, technique, rounded game and team planning.

just donít like how his pre-fight words were basically just smoke. if you really disrespect him that much, then GO FOR HIM.

also annoying how in middle of 1st round he got inside behind some shots and then disengaged and went back to distance instead of trying to grapple or use his wrestling. this happens a lot with smaller guys and i still donít exactly get why.

Moraga is technically outclassed, but I'm impressed with his heart.

Who said it was exciting? & who said it has to be exciting?

Rory executed his gameplan perfectly.

Is it even possible yanking that arm in that position without breaking it? I think he could have gotten that Kimura if he yanked it instead of slowly applying pressure. Great submission attempt though. ‪#‎MightyMouse‬

Mighty Mouse is the last MMA fighter I would want to fight. He doesnt look intimidating at all but he would beat the bricks off you.

seriously. i'd rather face any HW at all in a dark alley rather than DJ. at least you could try to dodge or run away from the big dude!

one thing i don't understand about moraga is why, when he got in to grappling situations with DJ, he chose to do it straight up, giving away the center of gravity.

seems like if he knew his jon jones (etc) he would have splayed his legs a little bit and gained a lot more leverage for the takedown. meh.
