Matt Brown And Jake Ellenberger Are Booked to Scrap

Matt Brown won’t have to wait long for his next bout, as the UFC has announced he’ll scrap Jake Ellenberger on July 30th.

The welterweight fight will be part of UFC 201, which will go down in Atlanta, Georgia.

Brown (20-14) took on Demian Maia at UFC 198 earlier this month, and was submitted by the galaxy class grappler in round three. The resilient welterweight is 2-3 in his last 5 bouts and is ranked #8 at 170.

Ellenberger (30-11) was decisioned by Tarec Saffiedine in his last bout, which took place in January. The loss was Ellenberger’s fourth in his last five fights.

So, that’s a compelling bout on a couple of levels. It will be interesting to see how it plays out stylistically, and whether Ellenberger turns to his wrestling game extensively. It’s also a pivotal fight for both. Brown needs a win to remain a top ten welterweight, and Ellenberger is almost certainly in a must win situation.

UFC 201 will be headlined by a  welterweight fight between champion Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley.
