If Ellenberger gets finished by Saffy I think the UFC cuts him and he moves on to Bellator or WSOF.

Ellenberger looks like a guy who hasn't fought with confidence ever since Rory manhandled him. In his defense, he's been fighting solid competition and doesn't appear to have been allowed to step down in competition as his defeats accumulated

Definitely had little confidence against lawler and gastelum but those guys are the best of the best. He turned it around against koscheck and I thought he looked good against wonderboy and was his former aggressive self but just got caught. Not many guys have fought the caliber of fighters he has fought. He's really a good gatekeeper and gauge for the up and comers in the division.

Jake hasn't been the same since Diego thoroughly destroyed him in the third round. Kos is shot beyond recognition. Thompson just made him look pathetic. Tarec wins boring decision.

Disagree with you there. Only boring fight I remember ellenberger being in was against Rory. Even his losses are quite entertaining. He fought well against wonderboy and even had him hurt... That was a crazy fight, I can't see how he ever looked pathetic for one second in that one. Guy deserves respect...
