Jake Ellenberger vs. Rory MacDonald at UFC on FOX 8 on July 27th in Seattle

The number 3 and number 4 ranked welterweights in the UFC 170 pound division will meet at UFC on FOX 8 in Seattle, Washington on July 27th, 2013, as the heavy hitting, Jake Ellenberger takes on Canadian top prospect, Rory MacDonald.

Ellenberger made an even bigger statement than ever before by knocking out former Strikeforce welterweight champion, Nate Marquardt in the very first round at UFC 158 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He is thought to be just one win away from a shot at the welterweight king pin, Georges St-Pierre.

MacDonald is also coming off of the most decorated win of his young career this past December, picking up a more than impressive three round unanimous decision win over MMA legend, B.J. Penn. The only defeat on his record came at the hands of Carlos Condit, a man he has called out on more than one occasion.
