Jake Ellenberger vs Rory MacDonald Betting Odds

Published on July 24th, 2013 4:26 pm EST
Rory MacDonald will square off against Jake Ellenberger in a Welterweight clash in the co-main event of this weekend's UFC on Fox 8: Moraga vs Johnson.

There is plenty on the line in this fight, as both fighters would likely earn themselves a shot at the winner of GSP/Hendricks with an impressive victory.

Jake Ellenberger is coming off of an impressive knockout victory over Nate Marquardt, while MacDonald is looking to build on the momentum of a dominant performance over BJ Penn.

Let's take a look at the odds for this fight as of this moment:

Rory MacDonald, -230
Jake Ellenberger, +180

According to these odds, MacDonald is about a 3-1 favorite to win. A $230 wager on MacDonald would yield a total profit of $100 if he was able to pull out the victory, while a successful $100 bet on Ellenberger would yield a total profit of $180.


Jake Ellenberger has incredible knockout power (see fights against Jake Shields and Nate Marquardt), but MacDonald is one of the most well-rounded and dynamic young fighters in the world today. In addition, MacDonald has one of the best camps in all of MMA, as he is able to spar regularly against the likes of Georges St. Pierre and Chris Weidman. As they say, iron sharpens iron.

This should be a great fight, and while MacDonald certainly has the edge, anybody can win.
