Jake Ellenberger Talks Training With Mickey Rourke, Walking In Wrong Person’s House

During his recent appearance on “Submission Radio,” UFC Welterweight contender Jake Ellenberger told a funny story about walking into the wrong person’s house when attempting to meet up with actor Mickey Rourke.

Below is an excerpt from the interview.

“So I’ve been training a little bit with Mickey Rourke. He’s getting ready for a big film coming up, but funny story. I was going over to his house. He gives me the address and it’s pretty dark. I can’t really, I can’t see very well, so I park. Anyway I get out, I ask this guy that’s standing on the street, I say ‘hey’ whatever it was (house) 319 or something, and he goes ‘Yeah it’s right here on the left.’ So I go over, and he’s (Mickey) working out and he’s just like ‘Yeah just come in, I’m in the back.’ So I walk in. Well first I knock on the door, text him, he goes ‘just come in,’ and there’s these little dogs going crazy. I walk in the house, you know I’m making friends with these dogs and patting them and I go and sit down on the couch, and there’s a big dog that comes in. So yeah I’m letting them smell me, we’re making friends, we’re having a good time. So now his dogs calm down, they like me, and so I’m just sitting in the living room just hanging out for a little bit and this girl walks in, and she’s like ‘Hi’ and I was like ‘Oh hey.’ But I could tell there’s something strange by the way she said hi. You could tell that it was like a ‘Hi?’ Like a question mark hi. And I was like ‘Hey, is Mick here?’ and she’s like ‘Who?’ And I’m like ‘Mick? Micky? Rourke?.’ She’s like ‘Oh, he’s next door’ and I’m like ‘No, you’re kidding me.’ And this is like, we’re talking like midnight. Like I could have been shot. Like I should have been shot. Yeah and I’m like, ‘I just made friends with five attack dogs next door Mickey and this lady’s wondering why I just walked into her house, into this Beverly Hills mansion.'”
