Diego Sanchez vs. Jake Ellenberger Rumored for UFC 141 in Las Vegas, NV

Former lightweight title contender, Diego Sanchez is rumored to make his return to the octagon to face now 170 pound contender, Jake Ellenberger at UFC 141 in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 30th, 2011.

Sanchez enters this fight riding a two-fight winning streak after defeating both Martin Kampmann and Paulo Thiago via decision since returning to the 170 pound division. He was due to face Matt Hughes at UFC 135 earlier this month but was forced out due to injury.

Ellenberger has shot up the 170 pound ranks this year, most notably after a first minute knockout win over former Strikeforce middleweight champion and former welterweight number one contender, Jake Ellenberger at UFC Fight Night 25. He also holds wins over Mike Pyle, John Howard and Sean Pierson.
