Jake Ellenberger Says It’s Not Easy To Get A Championship Shot In The Welterweight Division

Jake Ellenberger (27-6) looks at the welterweight division has full of possible names to challenge for the championship.

“The division keeps getting better,” said Ellenberger to MMA Interviews. “It’s hard to put together a win streak in any division, especially in the welterweight division. There are so many guys who are underrated, incredible and go unrecognized.”

Ellenberger’s six UFC fight winning streak was ended in June by Martin Kampmann (20-5).

“I think it’s so hard to put three, four, or six wins together to get a championship shot in the welterweight division,” said Ellenberger. “Consistency is the big thing. It shows how bad you want something.”
