At UFC on Fuel TV, Jake Ellenberger will look to move one step closer to a welterweight title shot with a win over Diego Sanchez. Coming off of a very impressive win over Jake Shields, Ellenberger has separated himself as one of the top contenders in the division.
A winner of back-to-back fights, Sanchez will attempt to steal Ellenberger's spot in line for a championship bout by imposing his aggressive style. At worst, Sanchez will provide a stiff test for Ellenberger, as the former lightweight contender has never been stopped in a three-round fight.
The event will also feature a battle of up-and-coming heavyweights, as Stefan Struve will square off against Dave Herman in the co-main event. Both young fighters are coming off of big wins in their previous performance, and will be trying to score an impressive victory against the other to earn a step up in competition.
Before Wednesday's event, the fighters will hit the scales at the Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Neb. on Tuesday at 5 p.m. ET.
Video of the weigh-ins will be streamed live on the above video player. After the weigh-ins, stay tuned to Bleacher Report MMA for all the latest on UFC on Fuel TV and the rest of your MMA needs.
