    Crazy. He started like a bat outta hell. Dude bad his back to the wall for sure and he delivered. Master Cordeiro bless.

    I may not like the guy, but good for him. This, his new baby, and a POTN bonus? I'm sure he's on cloud 9. Let's see how he can evolve with Cordeiro in his corner from now on.

    If he loses his next fight I'll expect him to fly to Vegas again.

    It might just be the spark he needs to get his head back in the right place, where it was before the losing streak where he was pulling the trigger non stop. Hopefully it's the case, cause he was a lot of fun to watch.

    UFC should cut him after every fight. Keep him motivated.

    If he's going to stick around, hopefully he can overcome whatever mental blocks he's been experiencing for the last while.

    He went for it tonight and he got it. Now he knows what he needs to continue to do. He clearly hits very hard, but he freezes in there and doesn't do anything.

    Back against the wall, nothing left to lose. That's inspiring.

    I'm very happy for Jake. Back when he beat Shields, I thought he could become champion. But after Kampmann beat him, it seemed to me that he had some serious mental hurdles. He just didn't look the same for the most part, which is unfortunate because he has the physical tools to be champ. He has retarded power, explosiveness, great wrestling, and so on. Hopefully he racks up some good wins and gets a title fight.

    Love the juggernaut, sadly I think he's a little far gone now but a prime, cnfident and aggressive Ellenberger is a scary dude.
