UFC Live Blog: Jake Shields vs. Jake Ellenberger Updates

NEW ORLEANS – This is the UFC Fight Night 25 live blog for Jake Shields vs. Jake Ellenberger, the main event of tonight's UFC on Spike telecast from the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

Shields (26-5-1, 1-1 UFC) is coming off his first loss in more than six years, a unanimous decision setback against welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre at UFC 129 in April. Though Shields lost the fight, he snapped St-Pierre's lengthy streak of 33 straight winning rounds. He also fights for the first time since the death last month of his father and manager, Jack Shields.

Ellenberger (24-5, 4-1 UFC) seeks his fifth straight win in the welterweight division. He hasn't lost since his UFC debut, a split decision setback nearly two years ago to the day against Carlos Condit, St-Pierre's next title challenger.

The live blog is below.

Round 1: Big ovation for Shields as Bruce Buffer announces him. The two Jakes look for position early, and Ellenberger lands the first takedown – though Shields pops right back up. Kick from Shields is countered by Ellenberger with with a left-right, and he then drops Shields in a hurry with a pair of big knees. He pounces and starts raining down strikes until it's stopped. It's a tremendously fast finish for Ellenberger and a fairly sizable upset – and the second straight loss for Shields more than six years without one.

Result: Jake Ellenberger def. Jake Shields, TKO (strikes), 0:53 Round 1
