If Carlos Condit’s ultimate decision is to sit and wait for the return of UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre later this year, then that leaves a couple of top contenders awaiting match-ups of their own.

At the top of that list sits Jake Ellenberger, who is currently riding a six fight win streak, most recently defeating Diego Sanchez at UFC on Fuel TV 1 in February.

Ellenberger’s wish list starts with a rematch against Condit, who defeated him in his UFC debut, when he stepped in on a month’s notice to face the former WEC champion.

Speaking to Fuel TV’s UFC Tonight, Ellenberger thinks now is the best time for him to face Condit, and he believes he’s earned it.

I'm still hoping for MacDonald vs Eburger, but that probably won't happen. I think Kampmann has a very good chance to beat burger, as his technique is much better standing up.

imo MacDonald needs 1 more win (after beating Che Mills) to start fighting guys at the top of the division.

You are unfortunately correct. Imo he is in top 3 in ww as far as talent goes, with his most recent loss being a very strange stoppage to Condit and I thought he clearly had the first two rounds in the bag. A friend of mine keeps saying he has the roids look on his shoulders and back, but I just hope that's false since I believe him to be the future of ww.
