UFC On FX: Open Workouts

A welterweight bout with serious title implications has just been booked to headline “The Ultimate Fighter” Live on FX Finale set for June 1.

Jake Ellenberger will face Martin Kampmann in Las Vegas, NV in a bout scheduled for five-rounds.

Jake Ellenberger last saw action headlining the UFC on FUEL TV 1 event where he was able to secure a decision victory over the always tough Diego Sanchez. It was his sixth straight win in the UFC in seven bouts. His lone loss came to Carlos Condit in his UFC debut, a fight that he took on just two weeks’ notice.

Stepping in to face Ellenberger is Martin Kampmann. Kampmann has often found himself on the verge of greatness, only to miss the mark with minor imperfections in his performance. He lost a razor close and controversial decision to Jake Shields; he was also put in the controversy spot light after his close decision loss to Diego Sanchez and a bad performance against Paul Daley also haunts his record.

However, the Danish Xtreme Couture product has been able to rattle off two impressive victories as of late over Rick Story and Thiago Alves, both of who are top contenders.
