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.

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.

Will Jake Shields be able to redeem his loss this time? Or will Jake Ellenberger improve his record with a five-fight win streak after the match?

GSP’s Left Eye Back to Normal

Written on May 17, 2011 by Alvin Guerro

GSP is a back on training after his left eye's visibility has got much better from 10 percent visibility.

Georges St-Pierre is training again after his left eye healed. His left eye was damage during his fight against Jake Shields at UFC 129, resulting to Hyphema or bleeding of the eye. GSP took a rest for while to fully recover and bring back his left eye’s full vision.

Georges St-Pierre’s jiu-jitsu coach and ophthalmology, Dr. Bruno Fernandez, said that the fighter’s vision was affected by the injury and could barely see things clearly. The ophthalmologist insisted that eye sight was really measured based on the lost field of vision, clarity and depth perception. He also elaborated that having Hyphema is like looking through a really dirty window, making your vision significantly impaired.

Georges St-Pierre was lucky that the blood in his eye has been reabsorbed in two weeks after his fight. Some extreme hyphema might cause permanent visual impairment according to Dr. Bruno Fernandez.
