Jake Shields and Jake Ellenberger, to Face for Fall UFC Fight?
A battle of Jake's are said to come this fall, as Jake Shields and Jake Ellenberger are said to face at the rumored UFC 138 card.
After his unanimous decision loss to Georges St-Pierre last April, Jake Shields will reportedly face Jake Ellenberger next. Sources close to the match-up revealed that both fighters agreed to meet this fall, while the venue is not yet certain. However, it is possible that UFC will set the bout on November 19 in San Jose, California. The event is also said to be UFC 138, albeit the promotion hasn’t made it official yet.
The Jake Shields vs Jake Ellenberger fight is a match that the latter is not ashamed to ask for. Last May, Jake Ellenberger told the media that he wants to fight Jake Shields, and he also believes that he has what it takes to beat the notable MMA fighter.
For the first time, Jake Shields was defeated and his 15-fight win streak was snapped by Georges St-Pierre. On the other hand, Jake Ellenberger is carrying a four-fight win streak — including his first-round knockout victory over Sean Pierson at UFC 129.
