Is Ellenberger one of the worst fighters under pressure?

    The way he shrinks into a shell when he's being pressured and/or tagged makes me worried for him. I thought he was going to just wilt against Brown there if he didn't land that kick. It's been his problem since way back. He throws bombs, gasses, and wilts under pressure. Once he starts getting tagged with anything, you can tell by his movements he's ready to wilt to his opponent. I feel with more refinement earlier in his career, he could've been a much better fighter.

    After seeing Matt recover and walk down Jake, I thought Jake was legitimately scared and that it was GG. Did not see that kick coming at all. Congrats to Jake either way though.
