IFL and M-1 Challenger veteran Jake Ellenberger (21-4 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is the latest addition to the UFC, and the 24-year-old will face a stiff test in his first trip to the octagon.
I gotta say, this sure is disapointing! I know that the UFC probably wants Condit to get back on track but they could have done better than this. Dont get me wrong Ellenberger has skills and a bright future but not the matchup that I was hoping for.
what a let down, with all the good welterweights who need a fight like davis, hardy, brown, johnson, hughes, serra, the best they could come up with is this guy, so disappointed.
Would have liked to have see Dong Hyum Kim as the replacemant.
I agree with the other posters. No offense to Jake Ellenberger but I feel that if Condit is going to be matched up with anyone, they should at least have the pedigree to be worthy of a WEC title shot. I don't know if Jake does, mostly because I've never really heard of him. Jake could have legit skills that I haven't heard about, but its hard to believe when you haven't heard of the guy.
He's lost to Jay Hieron and Rick "Horror" Story as far as people you may have heard of.
Looks like a guillotine or armbar in rd 2 for Condit!
condit by what ever he wants
Carlos just aint the stud in the ufc,like he was in the wec.This fight will either put him back in a title hunt,or send him to one last fight in the big leagues.
WTF!? Because he lost a Split Dec to Kampmann?? Dudes a stud, this is just a way to begin the rebuilding process. I think Condit will AT LEAST be a UFC Gate Keeper (a title I hold in high regards)!
