"The Juggernaut" Jake Ellenberger continued his run inside the Octagon with an impressive victory over the former title challenger Jake Shields, as part of main event action of UFC Fight Night 25 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Right in the first exchange of the fight, Jake Ellenberger was able to tag Jake Shields with strong knee to the mid section followed by a knee to the face, which stunned the former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion. Smelling blood, Ellenberger unleashed hell with vicious ground and pound, as the referee Kevin Mulhall rushed in to stop the action at 0:53 minutes into Round 1.
Shields still continued the fight, although this time he was shooting on Kevin Mulhall, and not on Jake Ellenberger who was already celebrating his famous victory. Shields was clearly out, without any signs of coming back into the fight. Good call by Mulhall.
Jake Ellenberger scores his fifth consecutive victory in the UFC, spiced-up with 4 KO/TKO finishes. Ellenberger now finds himself in the mix for a shot at the UFC Welterweight title, with Rory MacDonald as potential opponent for the #1 Contender spot. Ellenberger could also face the winner of BJ Penn vs. Nick Diaz, looking to add another high-profile name to his amazing record.
