No way. Saunders is a level down from Barbarena at this stage and a many levels down as far as taking damage. Ellenberger should put him away and this should be Saunders last ufc fight you would think.

But of a question mark for me. Two fading guys fighting for relevance. Barbarena and Ellenberger intrigued me more than the current. BUT! I am still interested in who wants it more. I think Ellenberger takes it, he has been more methodical and game-plan-oriented in his last 5-6 fights.

I agree, Saunders is getting KO’d.

I double disagree. Shane is right that this is a better fight but also disagree with you two that Burger King holds much of an advantage. He's been on a serious slide for years, getting koed in several recent bouts. His win over brown (also on a slide) was his only win other than koscheck in the last 5 years.

If Killa be uses kicks from the outside and avoids the Whoppers he could easily take this fight.

You have to look at who Ellenberger has been fighting too with his string of losses. You have Rory Macdonald, Saffadeine, Lawler, Wonderboy, Masvidal. I mean all of those guys apart from Saffadeine are killers. I really think it's more of the competition Ellenberger has faced rather than himself getting any worse.
