Review: 2014-11-15, pretty good finish between Jake Ellenberger and Kelvin Gastelum but it is not enough to get three stars (UFC Performance of the Night). Jake Ellenberger entered this fight with a pro mma record of 29-8-0 (79% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.15 welterweight in the world but he comes off two consecutive defeats: he lost to Rory MacDonald in 2013 (=Ellenberger vs MacDonald) and to Robbie Lawler in 2014 (=Lawler vs Ellenberger).
His opponent, the undefeated Tuf 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum, has a record of 9-0-0 (67% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.17 in the same weight class, he has fought twice in 2014 beating Rick Story and Nicholas Musoke (=Gastelum vs Musoke).
