What was the high spot of this fight?
The crushing power shot that stiffened Pierson's limbs and sent him tumbling to the ground.
Where do these guys go from here?
Ellenberger has won 4 straight UFC fights after dropping a very close split decision to Carlos Condit in his first trip to the Octagon. I would hope that he is given better fights than guys with limited upside coming off horribly sloppy brawls.
Pierson had a six fight win streak stopped at the left hand of Ellenberger. I don't know that he will find long-term success in the UFC but I'd assume an undercard bout against another 170 pounder coming off a loss is in order. From there we can get a better idea of where he fits in the roster.
Watch it now, later, or never?
I like knockouts, and I'm sure you do too. Plus, it's only one round. So watch it now.
