As soon as Jake Ellenberger gets his hand injury healed, he would like to take the challenge of fighting Jake Shields next.

During last week’s , doesn’t look like he only had two weeks to prepare for his fight against Sean Pierson. He actually came out strong, and was able to dispatch his opponent off the first round with a counter-left punch. However, acquired a hand injury that caused him to go under surgery last Tuesday.

That said, the six or so weeks off due to hand injury will push Jake Ellenberger to take a bit of vacation. But when he fights again, he has one particular opponent that would like to take — that’s if UFC matchmaker, Joe Silva, will allow it.

Jake Ellenberger has been looking forward to fight next.

“I definitely still think Shields is on that level; he’s a top guy. Fighting a guy like GSP, that’s a tough feat in it’s own, but Shields is still a top ten guy in the division. I’m ready, I really feel I’m ready. I’m just ready to face those top ten guys.”

    I think that would be an excellent match up and a def challenge, falling to Condit was tough but you rebounded well and I think a win over Shields will put you in the next slot of a shot at Welterweight gold
