Hatsu Hioki Missing Out On Personal Expectations

Hatsu Hioki??s first two attempts inside the UFC??s Octagon saw the featherweight leave the victor. They??ve been matched with defeats and having Hioki questioning his potential.

“I can definitely say that I have learned so much from wins and losses, so in that sense I have been meeting my own expectations,” said Hioki to MMA Junkie. “But as far as the UFC record goes, I’m 2-2 now, so it’s not too pretty.?

At 26-6, Hioki has dropped decisions to Ricardo Lamas and Clay Guida. The Japanese fighter has been in the business for a decade and takes on Darren Elkins later in the month.

Elkins secured five straight wins since cutting to featherweight. It came to an end thanks to Chad Mendes.

They??re on the main card of UFC Fight Night 27, which is August 28. It??s from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN.
