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.
