    Wow don't blink on this one. Both of those guys bring it every single time. That's why they earn so many bonuses.

    You have to go with Ellenberger because his standup is way better than Sanchez.

    We'll finally be able to see if Ellenberger can back up his mouth in this fight because Sanchez always brings it.
