Riding an extremely impressive six-fight winning streak, Jake Ellenberger will look to take one step closer to a welterweight title shot at this Friday's TUF Finale, where he will meet Martin Kampmann in the co-main event.
In his past two fights, Ellenberger has defeated former title contenders Diego Sanchez and Jake Shields. Also, in his past 11 appearances, Ellenberger has only been defeated by interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit.
Meanwhile, Kampmann has won two straight since suffering controversial losses to Sanchez and Shields. In his most recent fight, Kampmann secured a miraculous guillotine choke and submitted Thiago Alves in the final minute of a bout he likely would have lost on the scorecards.
Less than a week away from this important welterweight matchup, let's take a look at whether Ellenberger will make an argument for a title shot, or if Kampmann will steal his opponent's thunder and become one of the top 170-pound contenders.
