Rory MacDonald vs. Jake Ellenberger fight results UFC on Fox 8, Round 2

The co-main event of the UFC on Fox 8: "Johnson vs. Moraga" network television show from the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington, featured Canadian wunderkind Rory MacDonald putting his top welterweight ranking on the line against fellow 170-pound beast Jake Ellenberger. The two came into this evening with visions of a title shot dancing in their heads but an impressive performance was likely needed.

The second round looked like it would play out much like the first after the opening minute. MacDonald was still coming forward, utilizing good footwork, a nice jab, and effective range to neutralize all of Ellenberger's offense, but good god, this was boring as shit.

Effective, though.

The commentary team of Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan wondered if "The Juggernaut" was giving "Ares" too much respect. Right on cue, he shot in for a takedown, but that failed and the remainder of the round was contested in the same way the first eight minutes or so was.

Stalemate.
