Fresh off his fifth consecutive victory at featherweight, Darren Elkins will put his skills to the test against Chad Mendes at UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Melendez. MMAjunkie.com first reported the selection of Elkins to replace an injured Clay Guida.
Elkins (16-2) defeated Antonio Carvalho this past weekend and asked for a Top-10 opponent in his next bout. He’ll get it in Mendes (13-1), a former No. 1 contender to the UFC title.
The bout will likely be featured on the FX-prelims, as the FOX main card appears to be set on April 20 from the Honda Center in Anaheim.
