Jake Ellenberger vs. Carlos Eduardo Rocha Expected for UFC 126 Main Card

Jake Ellenberger has a new opponent for the UFC 126 main card, as the rising welterweight is expected to face undefeated Carlos Eduardo Rocha at the Feb. 5 pay-per-view in Las Vegas, according to MMAjunkie.

Left without an opponent after Jon Fitch was tapped to meet BJ Penn at UFC 127, Ellenberger (23-5) rebounded from a debut loss to Carlos Condit with wins over Mike Pyle and John Howard, while Rocha (9-0) submitted TUF 11’s Kris McCray in his UFC debut earlier this month.

The UFC 126 fight card is headlined by middleweight champ Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort and also features Rich Franklin vs. Forrest Griffin and Jon Jones vs. Ryan Bader.
