Final round underway, and Ellenberger needs to make something happen.
He whiffs badly with a right, but at least Ellenberger has a sense of urgency heading into this round. MacDonald, on the other hand, couldn't be calmer.
Ellenberger slows a bit, but only for a moment. He turns things back up, attempting to close the distance. He lands glancing blows, but he's going to need to continue the pressure.
MacDonald slips to the mat after a kick, but quickly stands back up. Ellenberger takes the center of the cage, looking to pressure MacDonald here. Only problem? MacDonald continues to utilize dominant foot movement to avoid dangerous situations.
Kick from Ellenberger lands, but not with much power. MacDonald lands another jab, then rushes forward with a combination.
They exchange briefly, and Ellenberger explodes for a much-needed takedown. They scramble, but Ellenberger remains in top position, but MacDonald only needs to survive for 30 seconds.
Ellenberger fails to mount much offense, and MacDonald grabs hold of an omoplata as time winds down. The round closes, and MacDonald takes it 10-9.
It wasn't an exhilarating experience for the fans, but the Canadian should take home the victory.
Official Score: MacDonald def. Ellenberger via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 30-27)
