Video: Jake Ellenberger must finish Martin Kampmann to prove he's a title contender

"It's definitely an honor to be a main event again, I'm just excited. I'm a big believer in 'actions speak louder than words.' I gotta finish this fight, I gotta prove that I'm even a contender for that title. I'm just gonna control what I can control and take it one fight at a time like I always have. With the coaches that I've been surrounded with and the people around me that believe in me, that's been such a big help for me in knowing I can beat anybody in the world at 170."

Top welterweight contender Jake Ellenberger looks to cement his status as division number one contender by finishing off Martin Kampmann in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Live Finale this Friday night (June 1, 2012) in Las Vegas, Nevada. "The Juggernaut" is widely considered to be in the upper echelon of 170-pounders, but does he need to snuff out "The Hitman" to move himself ahead of other surging welterweights like Johny Hendricks?
