Jordan Ellis vs Austin Luff is a matchup to keep a close eye on. With such high stakes, who will come out on top and enter Season 2 at whichever ranking they choose? Ellis has been the Darkhorse of the tournament and put up a great effort against Joel in last card’s main event. Ellis had the second most views, just had the toughest opponent that month. With such a star-studded main event, many may sleep on this matchup. With that being said, Ellis is no longer the underdog here, so can Luff get back to his winning ways?
MATCHUP OF THE NIGHT
Joel Torres vs Connor Rogowsky is without a doubt, the matchup of the night. This season’s coaches, both have been representing their teams by putting on consistent content getting viewed by many. One of these two men will be crowned The Ultimate Writer. The loser will get another shot in the next season as the #1 ranked writer.
UNDERDOG TO WATCH
Matt Puppich has everything it takes to win this one and get into the next season’s bracket. Although tough matchups await Puppich, he wants his shot at season 2 and he now gets that shot. But first, he must go up against a tough opponent in Tyreef Cash.
