Jon Fitch vs. Jake Ellenberger at UFC 126 in Las Vegas, Nevada

UFC top contender, Jon Fitch and heavy handed grappler, Jake Ellenberger look set to throw down in a welterweight bout at UFC 126 in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 5th, 2010.

Fitch has strung together five wins since losing his sole fight inside the octagon to Georges St. Pierre back in August 2008, defeating Akihiro Gono, Paulo Thiago, Mike Pierce, Ben Saunders and was last seen in action at UFC 117, defeating Thiago Alves via unanimous decision.

Ellenberger could make a serious step up the ranks at 170 pounds if he can become the second fighter to defeat Fitch inside the octagon. He’s coming off back-to-back wins over Mike Pyle and John Howard over the past twelve months since losing to Carlos Condit in September of 2009.
