Joe Ellenberger Makes UFC debut in April

The Ellenberger brothers to fight in separate bouts on UFC 172 card in Baltimore
With his brother Jake already set for an April 26 date in Baltimore against Tarec Saffiedine, Joe Ellenberger will make it a family affair at UFC 172 when he steps into the Octagon for the first time in an lightweight bout against Hawaii's Yancy Medeiros.

Nebraska's Ellenberger enters the UFC having won two straight, most recently a first round TKO over Joe Wilk. Medeiros is coming off the biggest win of his career, a first round knockout of Yves Edwards at UFC Fight for the Troops 3 last November.

With the signing of the 14-1 Ellenberger, the two will become the 14th set of brothers to compete in the UFC.
