“The Juggernaut” Jake Ellenberger (29-6) has continued to show that he truly is one of the divisions top talents, as he takes out the former Strikeforce champ Nate Marquardt (32-11-3) at UFC 158 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Ellenberger has now strung together back-to-back victories after suffering a KO (knees) loss to Martin Kampmann in June of 2012. Prior to the loss the heavy handed striker and wrestler had defeated five straight, including Diego Sanchez, Jake Shields and Mike Pyle. “The Juggernaut” will likely be looking for contender status with another impressive victory.
