For those wondering what was next for Jake Ellenberger and Martin Kampmann, you now have an answer, courtesy of FX’s the Ultimate Fighter website:
Two top welterweights will wage war over five rounds in the TUF Live Finale main event, UFC president Dana White announced today.
Verbal agreements are in for a June 1 matchup between Martin “The Hitman” Kampmann will take on Jake “The Juggernaut” Ellenberger.
Ellenberger (27-5) is coming off a decision victory against Diego Sanchez, which was awarded the Fight of the Night and subsequent bonus. Kampmann (19-5) touts a late submission victory over Thiago Alves, which earned him the Submission of the Night bonus. With this five round battle of recent event headliners now set, both men are likely thinking about title shots after this fight – although neither will be an easy obstacle for the other to overcome.
As a TUF Finale main event, this is likely to end the night on a terrific note although neither Ellenberger nor Kampmann are involved in the filming of either FX’s TUF or Brazil’s TUF.
