UFC on Versus 2: John Howard vs Jake Ellenberger scheduled for Aug. 1

by Jesse Holland on Apr 21, 2010 10:04 AM EDT


Streaking welterweight up-and-comer John Howard (14-4) has been tapped to take on fellow 170-pound prospect Jake Ellenberger (22-5) at the upcoming UFC on Versus 2 event tentatively scheduled for the Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Our amigos over at MMA Die Hards reported the pending match-up late last night.

Howard has quietly assembled an impressive seven-fight winning streak including a 4-0 run inside the Octagon. While he's yet to get that much-anticipated contest with nemesis Anthony Johnson, it hasn't stopped him from taking out his frustrations inside the cage.

"Doomsday" looked like a super man against Daniel Roberts at UFC on Versus 1, knocking the promotion newcomer senseless in just over two minutes. That performance came on the heels of his beatdown of Dennis Hallman at last December's Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Finale.


Facing him will be Ellenberger, who got back to his winning ways by stopping Mike Pyle (TKO) back in January at the UFC 108: "Evans vs. Silva" pay-per-view event.

That win helped take some of the sting off a razor thin split decision loss to Carlos Condit at UFC Fight Night 19 back in September 2009. While known for his wrestling, Ellenberger also has some very heavy hands, as evidenced by his highlight-reel knockout of Marcelo Alfaya at Bellator 11 last June.

UFC on Versus 2 is expected to be officially announced by the UFC in the coming days. Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more updates on this pending fight card as they develop.

I was still hoping to see Howard-Rumble, especialy after thei trash talking.
Oh well..
I think it will be an exciting fight. Howard in his last figh, looked in trouble at one point, but he managed to put it all togheter at get that sick TKO.
I don't think he will do the same with Ellenberger.
