Despite losing to Jay Hieron way back when in 2006 during an IFL event, Jake Ellenberger look to not only avenge the loss but also make a statement and get himself back in title contention when the two face off at UFC 151 next week.

Ellenberger talked to UFC.com about the fight this week:

“He likes to rely a little too much on his athleticism and it's gotten him a long way but I've fought him before. I've seen what he can do. I fought him when he was probably the most dangerous. It's harder to fight somebody for the second time when you kind of have a good idea of what they're gonna do. He doesn't like to get hit. I know that. I fought him once. Boy does he not like to get hit….I want to make a point. Not as much personally to avenge a loss but to make a statement.”
