Looks out to me
Whoops. Saw the fight once, havent seen gifs since then. That's a KO lol
Forever lost respect after his no-show in the Rory fight.
Robbie showed him how it's done.
His KO of Marquardt was vicious as fuck.
I think Jake can take a shot well, but his shortcomings are his striking defense and cardio. Were he to avoid swinging wildly, were he to pick his shots more wisely, and conserve his energy, he wouldn't find himself in situations where his chin is tested.
The only other time he's been rocked in a fight (the Kampmann stoppage was early btw), was the John Howard fight. Jake's chin held up though, and he ended up winning that fight. His chin is fine.
What the fuck? Do you even know what you're watching? The shot that put Ellenberger on queer street was a razor sharp counter straight right from Kampmann the likes of which also floored Diego Sanchez, who I guess has a crap chin by this standard as well. The fact that Ellenberger was not finished outright by such a crisp counter is commendable in and of itself.
Otherwise I've never even seen the guy be rocked.
Robbie is also a much better striker than Ellenberger, in addition to being a southpaw, which gave Rory fits as Lawler's active lead hand kept him from ever being able to get his jab going except when Lawler wanted him to, at which point he would relinquish hand control then slip and crack McDonald with a hard lead hook.
Note that Lawler essentially beat Rory by shutting down his jab, whereas Ellenberger was shut down by his jab. Different classes of fighters. No-show? More like no-parries.
Yeah, that fight was great!
agree Jake suffers from a mesomorph /conditioning issue most guys with a lot of muscle have issues with developing elite cardio. his tko against kampman was a cardio issue nothing else.
Except Big Rig, apparently. He ate them things up. Every last one of em, unfortunately.
Kampmann hurt him with a knee to the chest i don't think anybody has hurt him with a shot to the head
You could argue that any one of these guys has the best power at WW. And even the ones u cant make that arguement with are still savages. Condit, Rory, Story, Gastelum, Alves
He choked in that fight. I question his mental game and cardio, more so than his chin
He got knee'd on the chin
I know his dad passed away a bit before the fight but how many people have ko'd Sheilds?
He didn't take any really bad shots from Condit because Condit was worn down by the absolute beating he took in the 1st. I think Lawler turns out Ellenberger's lights.
Shocked me. Hendricks looked like a zombie in rounds 3 and 4 and a true world champion in round 5.
Him being finished by Kampmann was almost entirely fatigue. He blew his wad trying to finish Kamp in the first and was exhausted in the 2nd. He got hit with a flush knee and dropped but was still completely conscious. Just utterly exhausted and kinda hurt.
Jake is going to win this fight, I promise
