John Howard vs. Jake Ellenberger at UFC on Versus 2 on August 1st

John Howard (14-4) is set to face fellow welterweight Jake Ellenberger (22-5) at the upcoming UFC on Versus 2 event tentatively scheduled for the Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.

MMA Diehards first reported the news earlier and now sources close to the event state bout agreements are yet to be issued, but both camps have agreed to the fight.

Howard is on a seven-fight winning streak including four of those wins inside the Octagon. “Doomsday” defeated Daniel Roberts at UFC on Versus 1, knocking the UFC newcomer in just over two minutes.

Ellenberger was slated to take on Ben Saunders at UFC 111 on March 27th but was taken off the card when Thiago Alves did not gain medical clearance to fight Jon Fitch on the event’s main card and Saunders subsequently stepped in to the slot.
