UFC FN 44: Joe Ellenberger to Fight Frank Trevino
By FCF Staff
After having his Octagon debut at UFC 172 cancelled, Joe Ellenberger has been rebooked to face Frank Trevino on June 28th. The lightweight bout will be part of UFC Fight Night 44, which will be hosted by San Antonio’s AT&T Center.
Ellenberger had been scheduled to fight Yancy Medeiros at UFC 172, but the latter was moved to take on Jim Miller. Vagner Rocha was brought in as a replacement for Medeiros, but an injury forced the lightweight to withdraw.
Ellenberger (14-1) has won two straight, since incurring his only pro loss to date, versus Justin Salas.
Trevino (12-0) is coming off a successful UFC debut, as the undefeated fighter scored a unanimous decision win over Renee Forte in March.
UFC FN 44 will be headlined by a featherweight bout between Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens.
