Having won 14 of his past 15 fights, with his only loss during that time coming against former Bellator champion Hector Lombard, Brian Ebersole is on the verge of becoming a serious contender in the lightweight division.
First, however, Ebersole will have to stop the 24-year-old T.J. Waldburger from stealing his momentum. Since losing to top 170-pound contender Johny Hendricks, Waldburger has won two consecutive fights. A third in a row against Ebersole would put Waldburger in position to get another shot against one of the division's best.
On Friday night, Ebersole and Waldburger will meet on the UFC on FX 4 main card. Let's take a look at which fighter has a better chance of walking away with the victory.
