UFC Fight Night 34: Jake Ellenberger Offers Little Insight Into Reason For Exit

Jake Ellenberger was officially removed from the main event of UFC Fight Night 34 earlier this week after suffering an injury in training.

Ellenberger was slated to meet Tarec Saffiedine in Singapore this January. Instead, Hyun Gyu Lim will meet Saffiedine, who was the final Strikeforce welterweight champion.

“Unfortunately the Doc pulled me guys,” Ellenberger posted on Twitter. “I was really looking forward to Singapore. Thx for all the support.”

Ellenberger, who lost to Rory MacDonald in his most recent fight, and Saffiedine recently returned from a media trip to promote the fight and card.
