The contenders for Georges St. Pierre's welterweight title are beginning to line up again and after a devastating knockout of Jake Shields in his last fight, Jake Ellenberger has not just GSP, but the rest of the welterweight division on notice.

Ellenberger talked about the Champion recently and gave his thoughts on where he stands in the division during an interview with Tatame TV:

“Styles make fights and I go into each fight with no fear, working my strategy and what I'm gonna do. GSP is fantastic, one of the best fighters in the world. I'm working my way up, one fight at a time and hopefully I can get to fight GSP. I think [my style] is definitely one to give him more trouble than a lot in the past. He's one of the best fighters in this sport. I definitely have to be prepared and I've dedicated by life to training and doing everything I have to do to keep improving on things I'm weaker at or not as strong and become more well-rounded. I definitely believe I can beat GSP. I think I can beat anybody in my weight class in the world. I just have to continue to stay focused.”
