    Enjoy it while it lasts kamp. When you get beat by jimmy hendeX lol you’ll be on the way dwn while Ellenberger is guna skyrocket threw the ranks eventually grab n the title. That LUCKY A55 5hit you pulled off was spectacular considering how good Jake is .good job. As for jake yea buddy you and I know this little stumble is guna make you that much more hungry and smarter. Dont sweat it your guna win your next 6 fights anyway ! CHAMP !

    • maddawgmar

      I agree Ellenberger will be better coming back, but to call that fight lucky is just plain ignorant. Even if he didn’t finish it there, Jake was done. Gassed and wild punching.

      Suck my deek omahakilla. I lived in omaha for 3 months last year and hated it. Nebraska is the worst state in the US. All they talk about is their lame football team “huskers.” By the way, the only 2 things I learned from Omaha are 1) you punks are sore losers and 2) omaha chicks spread their legs too easy and love to suck w/o a condom…LOL I bet you do too! Go get that husker up your a-ss!!! LOL SUCK ON THIS BEETCH!!! You need to focking learn MMA before you post dumb a-ss comments like that whore!!!

  • johnnylopes

    how is ROry ranked so low n Martin so high? w.e itll be switched around soon

    • maddawgmar

      Martin beat two top ten fighters in the last two fights. Where Rory hadnt beat a top ten fighter.

  • jessemalloy

    I would think Bisping would be over Vitor, just my opinion though. I agree with the rest of it.

    • smill0313

      I think vitor would be too much for bisbing and is coming off a win or two so is ranked higher.

  • OMAHAK1LLA

    LUCKY beacuse it looked like kampman got hit by a train after the fight and didnt win 1 part of the fight until he landed a short right with jake come n in same with Alves did n win one part of that fight either til guilteeeeeen LUCK dont last forever every1 in the top 10 would beat him 9 out of ten times aint take n nothing away frm him thats the way it is. one things for sure I dont think Kampmans face dont feel to good right now!!!!!

  • somecokehead

    When someone is lucky on a number of different occasions, you no longer call it luck. Kampmann tends to shift gears after getting caught. Not a good long term strategy but exciting to watch.

  • OMAHAK1LLA
