by Ray Hui
Ben Saunders enters his UFC 111 against Jake Ellenberger on March 27 with notches on both his standup and ground game. The 26-year-old is coming off a win over Marcus Davis that once again pronounced how devastating his knees are from the clinch, and in January was promoted to a brown belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under American Top Team co-founder Ricardo Liborio.
In this exclusive interview with MMA Fighting, Saunders spoke at length about the preparations for a fight and the styles that have molded his game.
