As the rumor mill has been suggesting for quite some time, a welterweight matchup between Jake Ellenberger (pictured) and Tarec Saffiedine will headline the UFC’s debut in Singapore.
The event takes place January 4 inside Marina Bay Sands. Either Fox Sports 1 or Fox Sports 2 will broadcast the main card live in America.
Ellenberger looks to bounce back from July’s unanimous decision defeat to Rory MacDonald. However, “The Juggernaut” has won eight of his past 10 scraps.
Saffiedine will be riding a four-fight winning streak into the shootout. The bout marks the former Strikeforce star’s big league debut.
Hacran Dias vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri, Kiichi Kunimoto vs. Hyun Gyu Lim, Kyung Ho Kang vs. Shunichi Shimizu and Katsunori Kikuno vs. Quinn Mulhern were also confirmed for the lineup.
Here is the card’s current roster:
Katsunori Kikuno vs. Quinn Mulhern
Kyung Ho Kang vs. Shunichi Shimizu
Kiichi Kunimoto vs. Hyun Gyu Lim
Hacran Dias vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri
Jake Ellenberger vs. Tarec Saffiedine
