Not Looking Past UFC on FUEL 1, But Ellenberger Seeks Revenge Against Carlos Condit
“I would definitely like (a rematch with Condit), but right now, I really haven’t thought much past Diego at all. He’s an extremely tough challenge for me right now and that’s really all I’ve been focused on. After this fight, we can go back and evaluate the situation, but really, Diego’s all I’ve been focused on. … Diego’s always been an exciting fighter and a tough cat too. He’s just another guy I have to get past and prove I’m one of the best.”
Jake Ellenberger has, overtime, cemented himself as one of the UFC welterweight division’s most talented up-and-coming fighters.
He has tore through the majority of his competition, including a fantastic performance over the highly ranked Jake Shields in his last contest. However, the one glitch in his time with the promotion is his debut fight against Carlos Condit that he lost.
It was a close fight, but it pushed Carlos through to bigger and better things and now “The Natural Born Killer” is set to fight GSP in a title unification bout, coming off a headlining PPV gig and Ellenberger is stuck on free TV cards (for now).
A win over Carlos Condit could have made all the difference for Jake and he knows it, he acknowledges it and as he tells USA Today, he would like to get his rematch and prove who the better man really is.
His first step to realizing this goal, beat Diego Sanchez in two days’ time?
