That being said, watching the fight I didn't think he was actually "rocked" by that little punch from Kampmann. Instead, while watching (and now looking again at sdbolt's gifs), I thought Ellenberger blew out his left knee while twisting to punch.
I could be wrong, but when he sort of staggers away, it looks like his knee is very unstable-- looks like a blown ACL-- and he sort of tests it when he rights himself and waits for Kampmann to approach.
I'd be interested in hearing the medical suspensions.
That's what I believed happened as well when I first saw the fight and noticed his knee bending in strange directions. You can't stop some people from believing absolutely everything to be the result of glass jaws though.
okay! Glad I'm not the only one!
Looking again at sdbolt's gifs above, the 2nd gif shows him sort of test it around 3:29 (on the match clock). He doesn't look rocked; he just looks like he can't understand why his knee is bending in weird ways.
