No, but "Ta Danado" tells GroundAndPound.de that along with himself, "a lot of Americans" think he did:
"Not just me, a lot of people here in America think I won that fight. It was his (Ellenberger’s) strategy to be very careful in the second and third round. He kept the distance and moved away after each strike he committed. I believe he realized that he underestimated me before the fight, so he played safe and won the latter rounds with his tactic. I wasn’t able to fight my natural style anymore, because he avoided going to the ground, so I attacked with kicks and also some punches. I think I won the fight, unfortunately two judges saw it another way."
You've heard the Brazilian's argument, but is it enough to convince you he won his UFC 126 fight against Jake Ellenberger? The welterweight grappling stud certainly dominated round one, but a lack of action in rounds two and three, coupled with some well-timed takedowns from his opponent, may have ultimately cost him the decision in his first career defeat. Whose side are you on?
