Jake Ellenberger Asks For Match With Johny Hendricks

Jake Ellenberger was likely just seconds away from finishing Martin Kampmann earlier this year and facing Johny Hendricks.

Instead, Kampmann survived the first round, and stopped Ellenberger in the second, snapping his six-fight win streak in the process.

Hendricks and Kampmann competed Saturday night in the co-main event of UFC 154, with “Bigg Rigg” dropping Kampmann in the first round and earning a devastating knockout victory.

Now, Ellenberger is asking for a shot at Hendricks, and is even willing to take a huge gamble.

Ellenberger returned to action last month, defeating Jay Hieron to improve to 25-6 overall.
