Jake Ellenberger: “I’m an evidence-based abuser.”

Jake Ellenberger: “I’m an evidence-based abuser.”

UFC welterweight Jake Ellenberger is nicknamed “The Juggernaut” for good reason. In addition to looking like he’s built from bricks, Ellenberger has stopped 23 of the 29 opponents he’s beaten including eighteen by way of knockout.

When it comes to Ellenberger’s UFC on FOX 8 outing against Rory MacDonald it appears the 28-year old has more of the same planned. The heavy-handed slugger spoke offered insight on his intent this week during a conference call with media where he made MacDonald a few promises.

“I haven’t said anything that wasn’t true. My message to Rory is pretty clear: Pick some flavors of baby food and find one that you like and stock up, because this isn’t a ‘Tears for Fears’ lookalike contest. All I said was, ‘Prepare for some horizontal television time,’ and I meant it.”

“I’m an evidence-based abuser. I didn’t make him make this stupid decision to fight me. I’m just going to make him look stupid when I destroy him.”
