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

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.
