Darren Elkins (+130 Underdog)
Gym:
Duneland Vale Tudo
Base: Wrestling
Credentials/Accolades: Numerous High School State Wrestling Titles

Elkins is 7-2 in the UFC and has only lost to highly-touted prospect Charles Oliveira and the man widely considered the No. 2 Featherweight in the world, Chad Mendes. Out of his first 11 victories, nine were by stoppage, but he has only finished two opponents in the UFC. His wrestling will make or break him in this fight.

Jeremy Stephens (-170 Favorite)
Gym:
Alliance MMA
Base: Kickboxing
Credentials/Accolades: 3x Knockout of the Night

Stephens is a guy who always loses when he steps up in competition and Elkins is ranked tenth in the UFC rankings. Stephens has finished 82% of his wins, with 15 knockouts or TKOs. I will say that his level of opposition at lightweight recently has been very high, including two top 10 fighters. He has stopped 54% of the takedowns against him in the UFC.

Lightweight Bout: Donald Cerrone (8) vs. Adriano Martins

Cerrone has good numbers all around but nothing amazing. A good 76% finish rate including 14 submissions. Has had difficulty when fighting top level fighters but mauls fighters attempting to break into the top 10. Opponent opposition in the UFC has been quite experienced, with a 16-5 record average after rounding.

Gym:

Base: Wrestling/Boxing
Credentials/Accolades: NCAA DIV 1 Wrestler, 2009 Cleveland Golden Gloves Champion, National Quarter finalist

Miocic hasn't been very active, fighting only once last year. He has fairly decent defense but tends to get cracked more often than he should. His level of competition has been fairly high for someone with only 11 professional bouts. Finishing 80% of his wins, he has seven knockouts or technical knockouts on his resume and one submission, but it should be noted that the submission was due to leg kick.

We all know who Mr. Gonzaga is. The greatest achievement of his career was knocking out another Croatian Fighter named Mirko Filopovic via head kick. After a 1-4 stretch from 2009 to 2010, Gonzaga bounced back and has gone 5-1 in his past six with his sole loss coming to top contender Travis Browne. He has never won a fight by decision and has almost equal KO's to submission victories.
