Killa B steps up to face the Juggernaut at Utica. Saunders vs Ellenberger.

Just nine days ago, the UFC announced a fight between Jake ‘The Juggernaut’ Ellenberger and Bryan Barberena. As of today, that fight has been scrapped and Killa B, Ben Saunders, will step up to take the injured Barberena’s place.

Thomas Gerbasi at UFC.com broke the news:

“After an injury forced Bryan Barberena from his June 1 bout against welterweight veteran Jake Ellenberger, another longtime 170-pound standout has stepped in to face “The Juggernaut,” as Ben “Killa B” Saunders will now stand across the Octagon from Ellenberger at Adirondack Bank Center in Utica, New York.

Headlining the event, which airs live on FS1, is a clash of bantamweight contenders between Jimmie Rivera and Marlon Moraes. Tickets go on sale on April 6.”

This is by no means the common consensus, just my personal opinion. But, I like this fight between Saunders and Ellenberger a lot more.
