Ellenberger and Saffiedine to meet at UFC 172

An important welterweight matchup is added to UFC 172 in Baltimore...
Top Ten welterweights Jake Ellenberger and Tarec Saffiedine will finally get to do battle at UFC 172 in Baltimore on April 26. Originally scheduled to meet in Singapore earlier this year, an injury to Ellenberger sidelined him from the bout, but “The Juggernaut,” who has won two of his last three bouts, will be back in action this spring against the former Strikeforce champion, who made a spectacular UFC debut on January 4 with a Fight of the Night win over Hyun Gyu Lim.

In the UFC 172 main event, Jon Jones defends his UFC light heavyweight crown against Glover Teixeira.
