Apparently, reports of Jake Ellenberger's professional demise were premature.
Ellenberger came out from the jump and tagged Brown with a wicked overhand right on the button. Ellenberger swarmed Brown on the mat, but couldn't quite finish him.
Brown began to stalk Ellenberger and appeared ready to take the fight over. But then Ellenberger caught him with a wicked liver kick and finished the fight on the ground, getting the win at 1:46.
Ellenberger (31-11) , who now trains at Kings MMA, got back in the win column after a string in which he lost five out of six fights.
"Matt is a hell of a fighter," Ellenberger said. "I want to thank everyone at Kings MMA. For me, I had to refocus. I was trying to finish but Matt has shown in the past he's extremely durable. I just have to stop being so damn nice."
Brown (20-15) has lost four of his past five fights.
