Having been rebooked, then pulled from this past weekend’s UFC 172 just three days before the event, Joe Ellenberger has a new assignment for his UFC debut.
Ellenberger (14-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will meet Frank Trevino (12-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 44 in June. UFC officials announced the new lightweight booking overnight.
UFC Fight Night 44 takes place June 28 at San Antonio’s AT&T Center. Broadcast plans haven’t been announced, but the card is likely to be seen on a combination of FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
