Ellenberger: "I knew it was gonna be a tough fight, a guy that like doesn't take a fight unless he thinks he can win it, I knew he would be dangerous.

It was my plan to knock him out, I was waiting for the right moment and I got it in the first round. I love the fans in Kansas City, there was such a great energy here, I would live to come back here anytime. A big shout out to the Blackzilians back in South Florida, Rashad Evans and Miguel Torres, it's your turn next."
