Jake Ellenberger Has a New Opponent for UFC 126
Changes have been made and plans were finalized. Jake Ellenberger will now face Carlos Eduardo Rocha at UFC 126. Mark your calendar for this one spectacular fighting event.
Jake Ellenberg is not anymore fighting Jon Fitch at UFC 126 instead he was tapped for a fight against Brazilian Carlos Eduardo Rocha on Feb. 5. The said fight was confirmed last Tuesday by cage fighting sites like MMAjunkie and MMAweekly.
This is not a new experience for Ellenberger because last March, his fight against Ben Saunders at UFC 111 was also canceled. He was left without an opponent since Saunders replaced Thiago Alves that time.
Rocha is expected to keep his clean record no matter what it takes. The February event is his second appearance inside the cage. His debut happened during UFC 122 in Germany where he faced Kris McCray.
The event between Ellenberger and Rocha is likely to be the main card of the UFC 126 which will take place on Super Bowl Weekend. Another much-anticipated meeting on UFC 125 is the one between Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort.View Article Source »
