UFC 172 Fight Card: Saffiedine vs. Ellenberger on Tap

UFC 172 Fight Card: Saffiedine vs. Ellenberger on Tap

According to Jake Ellenberger, he is fighting this April at UFC 172 against Tarec Saffiedine.

The card is set for April 26 from Baltimore and the Baltimore Arena. So far, the only official bout is UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones against Glover Teixeira.

Ellenberger (29-7) was expected to welcome Saffiedine (15-3) to the UFC earlier this month, but a torn hamstring forced him to pull out. Ellenberger was defeated by Rory MacDonald last year.

Saffiedine, the last Strikeforce welterweight champion, earned his first UFC win by topping Hyun Gyu Lim in Singapore.

Ellenberger announced the first on his personal website, but has since taken it down, saying only an opponent will be announced soon.
