Jake Ellenberger is hoping for a "short night" against Diego SanchezPosted on February 7, 2012, 06:35 PM by Joey Santosus
Rapidly rising Welterweight, Jake Ellenberger, who will look to take one step closer to title contention with a victory over Diego Sanchez at UFC on Fuel 1, discusses his opponent, as well as his training and preparation for the bout. Ellenberger acknowledges that Sanchez is a "warrior" inside the cage, but says that he'll look to become the first fighter to finish "The Dream" via strikes.
"I'm hoping to make this a short night. I'm looking to stop him. That's the only thing that I'm thinking about right now, is just finishing him and proving that I'm the best Welterweight in the world. He's going to be ready, he comes to fight. Every person that he's fought, he's shown that he's a warrior. So, I'm expecting to fight the best Diego Sanchez. ... I've never been someone to do something halfway. When I do something I'm either all in or all out. The only reason that I am competing is to become world champ - that's it. I'm not doing it to get on TV or to make money. To wear a gold strap is the only reason that I compete."
