MMA: UFC Fight Night-Lamas vs Oliveira Etzel Espinosa-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently added an intriguing featherweight battle to its upcoming UFC Fight Night 140 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which takes place Sat., Nov. 17, 2018 on FOX Sports 1 inside Parque Roca Arena in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Ricardo Lamas vs. Darren Elkins.

Lamas (18-7), once considered the second-best featherweight in the division behind Jose Aldo, has fallen on hard times as of late. The 36 year-old “Bully” is coming off back-to-back losses to Josh Emmett and Mirsad Bektic and needs to get something going sooner, rather than later.

That won’t be so easy against Elkins (24-6), a grizzled veteran who’s captured six of his last seven. His last trip to the cage resulted in a hard-fought unanimous decision loss to Alexander Volkanovski, which left “The Damage” at No. 13 in the official rankings — one spot behind Lamas.

Who ya’ got?

UFC Argentina will be headlined by the welterweight showdown pitting Neil Magny opposite Santiago Ponzinibbio. Elsewhere on the card, budding power-puncher Khalil Rountree goes to war against Johnny Walker in light heavyweight action.
