Good fight coming up. I'm pulling for Ellenberger.

Really dull fight after 2 rounds. Rory is playing it safe, Ellenberger being really passive (and losing so far because of it).

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.
