Jake Ellenberger Will Fight Carlos Condit at UFC Fight Night 19

Jake EllenbergerUFC newcomer Jake Ellenberger will replace an injured Chris Lytle and take on Carlos Condit in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 19 on September 16 in Oklahoma City.

MMAjunkie reported the welterweight matchup on Wednesday after Lytle was forced off the card earlier in the day due to a serious knee injury that is expected to sideline him until next year.

An IFL and Bodog Fight veteran, Ellenberger (21-4) is currently riding a four-fight win streak that includes a 42-second knockout of Marcelo Alfaya in his most-recent fight at a June Bellator event.

Condit (23-5), the former WEC welterweight champ, had won eight-straight before suffering a split decision loss to Martin Kampmann in April in his UFC debut.

UFC Fight Night 19 is co-headlined by Nate Diaz vs. Melvin Guillard and Gray Maynard vs. Roger Huerta and airs like on Spike TV.
