UFC on FOX 10: Jeremy Stephens vs Darren Elkins added to Chicago fight card on Jan. 25, 2014

No rest for the wicked. Jeremy "Lil Heathen" Stephens vs. Darren Elkins is official for UFC on Fox 10 on Jan. 25, 2014.

Jeremy Stephens and Darren Elkins are set to collide in a Featherweight showdown planned for UFC on FOX 10, which is set to go down at United Center in Chicago, Ill., on Jan. 25, 2014.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) confirmed the pivotal 145-pound primetime showdown on Tuesday.

Stephens, a former Lightweight, was last seen beating the breaks off Rony Jason at UFC Fight Night 32: "Belfort vs. Henderson 2," scoring one of the sickest first round knockouts mixed martial arts (MMA) fans will ever see (watch it here). "Lil' Heathen" need just 40 seconds to get the job done, which upset Jason so terribly that he took out his frustration on a wall backstage and was later penalized for his actions.

The 27-year-old now sits at (22-9) and looks to notch his first ever three-fight UFC winning streak at the expense of Elkins.

Elkins (17-3), meanwhile, has won seven of his nine fights under the Zuffa banner, most recently out-pointing Hatsu Hioki at UFC Fight Night 27. But, most will remember when he stepped in on short notice for Clay Guida at UFC on Fox 7 and met a surging Chad Mendes.

The Hoosier met a similar fate Jason, losing in 68 seconds to the man called "Money."

Jeremy Stephens vs. Darren Elkins will be a clash of fight styles that could find its way onto the televised main card, or at the very least, atop the "Prelims" under card because of the potential for crowd-pleasing fireworks.

UFC on FOX 10 will be headlined by former UFC Lightweight champion, Ben Henderson, looking to derail the surging former Strikeforce 155-pound kingpin, Josh Thomson. For more on UFC on FOX 10: "Henderson vs. Thomson" be sure to hit up or complete event archive right here.
