Tarec Saffiedine will lock horns with Jake Ellenberger in the first ever UFC card in Singapore

TThe first ever UFC card in Singapore is starting to shape up with just a little over a month from its announcement last August. MMA junkie has first reported that Jake Ellenberger and former Strikeforce welterweight champ Tarec Saffiedine have already agreed to face each other in the headlining bout of the scheduled event in January 4, 2014.

Ellenberger is trying to get back into his lofty ranking in the welterweight division after suffering a frustrating loss to fellow rising star Rory McDonald. The fight received criticisms from MMA fans due to the lack of activity from both fighters especially Ellenberger, who failed to execute any significant offense on that night. Dana White himself admitted that he was disappointed with the performance of the two. Prior to the loss, Ellenberger put together two consecutive victories over Jay Hieron and Nate Marquardt.

After winning over Jake Shields at last Saturday's UFC Fight Night 25, Jake Ellenberger likes to have a match against Georges St-Pierre or Carlos Condit.

While up-and-coming welterweight talent – Jake Ellenberger – needed just 53 seconds to knock Jake Shields out, it was hardly the easiest victory of his career. In fact, he admitted that it was quite difficult to put aside his compassion to the former welterweight title contender — whose father passed away prior to last Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 25.

But he did what he exactly had to do — netting his fifth consecutive win under the UFC banner. Now, the 26-year-old fighter has his sights set on the top of the division. Jake Ellenberger is also confident that he would serve as a tough test to the winner of the upcoming UFC 137 welterweight title match between Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit.
