Shields vs. Ellenberger Wiki Update Wiki

In the main event of UFC Fight Night 25, Jake Shields took on Jake "The Juggernaut" Ellenberger in a welterweight showdown. Ellenberger came into the bout at 4-1 in his previous UFC competition, 25-5 overall, and likely on the verge of contender status with a win. Shields came into the fight as the former Strikeforce middleweight champion and in his first fight back from a title fight loss to Georges St. Pierre five months earlier in Toronto. Shields carried an overall record of 26-5-1, though was just 1-1 in the UFC. Three weeks prior to the fight, Shields's father and manager Jack Shields passed away.


Ellenberger opened up with an uppercut that missed, and then he threw Shields to the ground. Shields popped up and darted in for a takedown. Ellenberger defended, landed a right hand, a knee to the chin, and unloaded with punches as Shields was face down on the ground. Referee Kevin Mulhall dove in to save the dazed fighter, capping off a quick and violent finish to the main event.


The official end came at 0:53 into the first round for Jake Ellenberger for the biggest win of his career. Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Ellenberger commented, "I'm feeling unbelievable, Jake Shields is a world champion... I just surrounded myself with amazing people... Just keeping the pressure on him and I came out with the W."
