Mike Pyle vs. Jake Ellenberger added to UFC 108

Posted: November 16, 2009 by Xtreme Couture MMA in Mike Pyle

UFC 108’s  fight card got another addition with a booking that pits Mike Pyle (19-6 MMA, 1-1 UFC) vs. fellow welterweight Jake Ellenberger (21-5 MMA, 0-1 UFC).

Verbal agreements are in place and bout agreements will be signed shortly.

The event takes place Jan. 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and airs on pay-per-view.

Pyle, who previously competed for organizations ranging from Strikeforce to Affliction to EliteXC to World Victory Road, signed with the UFC earlier this year and took a fight with Brock Larson on just a day’s notice. He suffered a first-round submission loss but rebounded four months later and submitted Chris Wilson at UFC 103 in September.

Pyle, legendary for his intense workouts at Xtreme Couture, has now won four of his past five fights, all via submission. In fact, 16 of his 19 career wins have come via submission.

Ellenberger, meanwhile, made his UFC debut in September with a close, split-decision loss to Carlos Condit in a hotly contested UFC Fight Night 19 main-card bout.
