    Default Jake Ellenberger-Tarec Saffiedine targeted for UFC's January debut in Singapore

    http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/1...t-in-singapore

    A welterweight matchup between perennial contender Jake Ellenberger (29-7 MMA, 8-3 UFC) and former Strikeforce champ Tarec Saffiedine (14-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is expected to headline the UFC's January debut in Singapore.

    MMAjunkie.com today learned from sources close to the event that both fighters have verbally agreed to the matchup and bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly.

    The matchup is expected to serve as the headlining bout for the UFC's Jan. 4 event in Singapore, which the company announced in August. Neither a venue nor broadcast plans for the event have yet to be announced.

    Ellenberger is ranked No. 6 and Saffiedine No. 15 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA welterweight rankings.

    I'm looking forward to this fight. I'm a big Ellenberger fan, but Saffiedine's TDD and leg kicks could slow him down quite a bit. Then again, who knows how Saffiedine will come back from his layoff.

    Should be awesome!
