Jake Ellenberger racked up a much needed win at UFC 184 to maintain his relevance as a top Welterweight contender by submitting former divisional top dog Josh Koscheck in the second round at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Both the fighters entered the fight on the back of a losing streak of three fights and eager to snap that unwanted streak. Koscheck, meanwhile, entered the cage for the fight for the first time in 15 months after taking a sabbatical from the sport in order to reassess his career and his goals.
And it was Koscheck who came out the more aggressive of the two landing some hard punches on the Juggernaut but that was not enough to keep Ellenberger down and pretty soon, he managed to take control of things.
Josh Koscheck was having trouble seeing with his left eye during the second round and he kept wiping it and Ellenberger sensed an opportunity there to submit him with a north-south choke, which he did brilliantly.
