Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing an intriguing featherweight battle to its upcoming UFC Fight Night 140 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which takes place TONIGHT (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.
