"Beatdown" was back Wednesday as TJ De Santis and Jeff Sherwood welcomed UFC welterweight fighters Johny Hendricks and Jake Ellenberger to the program. The two men are set to face off against one another at March's UFC 158 card in Montreal.

"The Bigg Rigg" Johny Hendricks has had an outstanding couple of years inside the UFC's octagon. Defeating perennial top contenders like Josh Koscheck, Jon Fitch, and his most recent knockout victory over Martin Kampmann. Yet, Hendricks' fight with welterweight champion Georges St.Pierre has been tabled for now. Instead, he will face Jake Ellenberger at UFC 158. The Team Takedown product joined TJ and Jeff to talk about his championship snubbing, his thoughts on GSP-Diaz, and why he feels the Ellenberger match is more dangerous than a fight with St. Pierre.

The other side of that same story is told as Jake Ellenberger joins "Beatdown" to state his case as why he may be next in line for "Rush." The Nebraska native talked with TJ and Jeff about the March fight, if he feels Hendricks is truly the number one contender, and what he would be doing if he weren't competing in mixed martial arts.

De Santis and Sherwood take more year end predictions, answer calls, emails and tweets, and poll the audience on who the best commentating team is mixed martial arts is.
