UFC on Fuel TV 1: Blackout

From Nightmare, to Dream, to Gatekeeper?

The UFC will host the first fight on Fox owned Fuel TV. Unfortunately due to the limited availability of Fuel in homes, I won't be watching it. Which is a shame because Diego Sanchez puts on entertaining fights as does co-headliner Stefan Struve. Sanchez has a tough test and interesting challenge taking on streaking Jake Ellenberger. This is a potential cross-over match for Diego as he hasn't been able to ascend to the throne at 155 or 170, but the winner of this match will be right in the thick of it (especially after the whole Diaz thing). For Ellenberger it might be a bump in the developmental road, but for Sanchez, this could be his gatekeeper coronation. Ellenberger is performing at a top level, and I feel he has more strength than Diego, which might be too much to handle, even with all Diego's positive-Tony Robbins reinforced thoughts.

But, sadly, I can't watch it. I know the UFC is trying to rectify this ASAP, but I'll just turn it over to our friends at Sherdog and the UFC to give a breakdown.
