Rocha vs. Ellenberger removed from UFC 172

The anticipated debut of  Joe Ellenberger is going to have to wait for another event, as his scheduled fight against Vagner Rocha has been scratched from Saturday’s UFC 172 card.  Rocha, who was a late replacement, suffered a training injury, which has forced him out of the fight.  Due to the incident happening so close to the event, a replacement will not be searched for.

Ellenberger holds a professional record of 14-1 while fighting outside the Octagon, and is the twin brother of UFC welterweight Jake Ellenberger.

Jorgensen set to fight Martinez

Despite losing his last three, and going 1-5 in his last six, the UFC has booked Scott Jorgensen for another fight.  This time he will be squaring off against Danny Martinez in a flyweight contest.

After fighting most of his career at bantamweight, Jorgensen recently dropped to 125 pounds in a revival effort.  Unfortunately, he has fallen short, as he lost both fights at the new weight class.  Martinez on the other hand, lost his UFC debut at UFC 169 in a bout against Chris Cariaso.

The bout will take place at UFC Fight Night 42, which is scheduled to happen on June 7 from Albuquerque, N.M.
