I like all of the leans besides maybe Markes.  Not sure on that one.

I think ellenberger is being over-valued though.  I am no Diego fan, and this isn't a great matchup for him.  But he is a tough out.  He has great pace, cardio, and toughness.  That in itself is tough to bet against at that high of a number. 

Ellenberger really isn't a world class wrestler.  He is a division 2 standout and a very solid wrestler.  He has power in his hands, but his boxing isn't that polished yet.

I think he is a hell of a prospect, but he hasn't been tested yet.  The win over Shields is all nice and all.  But Shields just lost his father and it was a terrible matchup.  Shields has the striking of a 12 year old boy, so him getting KO'd wasn't anything too special.  Other than that he has beat....Sean Pierson, Rocha (by split), John Howard, Mike Pyle, and I guess he very well could of won vs Condit. 

But he hasn't really fought a decent wrestler with any standing ability yet.  I think he wins, but that line looks pretty inflated too me. 

Tough Card to cap.  I think these are all pretty close fights.  Menjivar is probably the biggest lock.

what took you so long to get this out?!

i really like ellenberger

really like struve

i think simpson is on a good roll, and the experience factor may be huge vs another wrestler. initial thought

i also really like brookins. he had a bad fight against a really good opponent last fight. i also read he was partyin a lot, and has refocused

I don't know what to think of Ellenberger vs. Sanchez. At this point in their careers Ellenberger should be able to do what ever the heck he wants with Sanchez but I have this weird feeling Sanchez is going to be in the fight...Sanchez is very tough and who knows. Not going to lay the juice on Ellenberger though

Yeah that's kinda where I'm at frank.  I already cancelled my bet on Diego thinking it was a 5-rounder, but because of Diego's pace and determination I don't plan to bet on Ellenberger.  Maybe just wait til the weigh-ins to see what kind of shape Diego's in before considering it?

the more I think about the Sanchez/Ellenberger fight the more I want to put a little on Sanchez. I think if Sanchez can avoid getting smashed in the 1st round he can win with his cardio. I'm interested to see what the over/under 2.5 line is after they weighin. If its favored to go to decision then I'm almost positive I will be playing Sanchez

I don't see any value in Ellenberger at all.   I think he wins.  But that line is crazy.  Sanchez could win or at the least steal 2 rounds and win a decision. 

Then again, a nice Ellenberger right hand can change that quickly.
