    Jake Ellenberger, Tarec Saffeidine rebooked for UFC 172
    Though the UFC has yet to make it official, it looks like Jake Ellenberger and Tarec Saffiedine will try it again. Ellenberger announced on his Twitter page that he will meet Saffiedine -- whom he was supposed to face at UFC Fight Night 34 in Singapore on Jan. 4 before a pulled hamstring sidelined him -- at UFC 172.

    Ellenberger confirmed to MMA Fighting that the fighters have verbally agreed to meet in Baltimore on April 26.

    After his last performance I see Tarec getting KTFO here.
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    Yeah, me too. I see it looking similar to the Marquardt fight

    Not sure I understand, Tarec looked incredible in his last fight against a very big, tough, and game opponent?

    He got tagged over and over again during exchanges he clearly had the better of. But if Jake hits him that much that cleanly I
    dont seemm him standing afterwords.

    Fair enough, the Juggernaut is powerful, though he won't enjoy the same size and reach advantage that Lim did.

    Tarec can outwork Ellenberger and work that stiff periphery game he was executing quite well against Lim(until that last act lol)....but Ellenberger will be headhunting the entire time and if he goes in looking for the kill, rather than conserving his load for the duration, I could see him walking through Saffeidine within the first round and a half.
