Jake Ellenberger had to shift gears from planning to fight former Strikeforce champ Tarec Saffiedine at UFC 172 to facing Robbie Lawler at UFC 173.

It’s a change he relishes; not because Lawler is an easy fight, but because Lawler is the type of fighter that will engage and allow Ellenberger to put on an exciting performance that fans enjoy… and so does he.

Spending some time with Ronda Rousey‘s coach in preparing for this fight, Ellenberger is excited for the possibilities this fight holds.

    Last time he talked like this…he literally did nothing against Rory MacDonald. He hopped around and ate punches and kicks.
