Jake Ellenberger Says That Robbie Lawler Will Bring Out His Best
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.07.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Jake Ellenberger (29-7 MMA, 8-3 UFC) said that his current UFC 173 opponent Robbie Lawler (22-10 MMa, 7-4 UFC) will bring out the best in him, unlike his former UFC 172 opponent Tarec Saffiedine.

On not fighting Saffiedine: "For me there wasn't a lot to gain. I think with a guy like Saffiedine it's like he may not be the most well known guy, but he's definitely a tough fight. You beat him, you should have. You don't or you don't look good and it is what it is."

On facing Lawler instead: "I feel like I do better when I'm a little bit with a guy like Lawler I feel like the best kind of comes out in me. When I fought (Nate) Marquardt I felt the same way. This guy is dangerous, this guy hits really hard. I like those."

On why he thinks Lawler will bring out the best in him: "I think it's the whole fight or flights mentality. When I fought Rory (MacDonald) I wasn't really ever nervous for a fight like Rory. I got too comfortable, I got too relaxed and that was the mistake I made. You have a bigger sense of urgency. When I'm in the corner a little bit or have a guy who I have to be a little more cautious about or be a little more worried about, it brings out the best in me."
