Joe Ellenberger Makes His Octagon Debut Against Yancy Medeiros at UFC 172
UFC 172’s main event will be Jon Jones vs Glover Teixeira for the UFC’s light heavyweight championship. It was already announced that another fight on that card, which takes place April 26 in Baltimore, would be Jake Ellenberger vs. Tarec Saffiedine.
On Monday, UFC officials announced a third fight. Joe Ellenberger (14-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC), Jake’s brother, will be making his UFC debut against Yancy Medeiros (10-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC).
