A key welterweight matchup between Jake Ellenberger (26-5 MMA, 5-1 UFC) and Diego Sanchez (23-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) has been scheduled for February.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with sources close to the event that Ellenberger and Sanchez will headline an as-yet-unannounced fight card expected to take place on Wednesday, Feb. 15.

While UFC brass have yet to make an official announcement, additional sources indicated that the event will likely take place in Ellenberger's hometown of Omaha, Neb., and air on FUEL TV.

Omaha's 18,000-seat CenturyLink Center (formerly Qwest Center Omaha) is said to be the leading candidate to host the event, but venue officials declined to comment on the potential booking.

Agreed. I would go ahead and predict a KOTN or FOTN being awarded for this fight, depending on how it ends. Either way I think Jake manhandles Deigo

Diego will have to change his nickname again after Jake cremates him.

I think Ellenberger will be the clear favorite, but I'm not going to dismiss Diego because I think he takes a decision if Ellenberger turns it into a boxing match.

with a card virtually every other weekend and them pushing their product on FOX, yes some PPVs are bound to be weaker. fans want more fights, Dana wants more fights, therefore some watered down cards will happen.

think of it like expansion teams in other sports. 30-32 teams is a lot and every team has its share of below average talent. back when there was 20 teams, for example, the talent on each roster was much better overall. but more teams = more games, more games generate more revenue, and us fans love the abundance of it.. MMA, but more so the UFC, its the same way

Ellenberger should get the UD. That said, Diego's got a better chance of finishing.

You may be right, Diego is always dangerous but he has not finished a fight since 2008 and Ellenberger has stopped his opponent in 4 out of his last 5 victories. Not that that really means much in a fight but I don't really expect Diego to finish people anymore, lately he has been the one taking massive amounts of punishment to squeak out close victories.

I actually think Diego is going to win here. I cant believe how many people aré counting him out. I think kampman would have whoopped jakes ass too. Diego is better on the ground. Jake isnt as dangerous technically as kampman but has more power. But diego has still never been stopped. He has such a sick chin and iron will and heart. Jake might hurt him and dominate the first. But diego will take the last two he never stops coming. Rocha took it to jake. Diego is so much better.

You think Kampmann would whoop Jake Ellenberger?
