Darren Elkins will be fighting Jeremy Stephens at UFC on Fox, January 25th in Chicago.
Elkins (17-3) is ranked in the top ten in the featherweight division. He was on the cusp of title contention and riding a five-fight winning streak when he suffered a technical knockout loss to top contender Chad Mendes in April. Elkins bounced back from his first loss in three years by defeating Hatsu Hioki in his last outing on Aug. 28. The fight against Stephens will be Elkins’ fourth fight in less than a year.
