Jake Ellenberger had a two-fight win streak snapped at UFC on FOX 8, after an uninspiring performance against Rory MacDonald, losing a unanimous decision. He had previously been in title shot consideration with back-to-back wins over Jay Hieron and Nate Marquardt. Ellenberger still holds an impressive 8-3 record in arguably the UFC’s toughest division, with five of those victories coming by knockout.
Tarec Saffiedine will go in the record books as Strikeforce’s last welterweight champion, as he defeated Nate Marquardt with a dominant unanimous decision in the promotion’s final show. He’s currently on a four-fight win streak, also including wins over Tyler Stinson, Scott Smith, and Roger Bowling. Injuries have kept him out of action for nearly a year.
