Jake Ellenberger-Martin Kampmann Primed For Main Event Of ‘TUF: Live 1 Finale’

Jake Ellenberger and Martin Kampmann have been pegged for the main event of The Ultimate Fighter Live: Finale on June 1, UFC officials announced on Wednesday afternoon.

The card will take place from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. So far, it is the only match announced for the evening, outside of the finals in the TUF lightweight tournament.

Ellenberger has won six consecutive fights since a split decision defeat at the hands of UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit. Most recently, Ellenberger defeated Diego Sanchez.

“The Juggernaut” also owns victories over Jake Shields, Carlos Eduardo Rocha and John Howard during his current win streak.

Kampmann surprised everyone watching when he submitted Thiago Alves while down on the scorecards earlier this year. Since two losses to Sanchez and Shields, “The Hitman” has defeated Alves and Rick Story.
