A featherweight bout has been added to UFC on FOX 10 on January 25th as Darren Elkins will face Jeremy Stephens.
The bout was officially announced by the UFC on Tuesday and it will most likely be placed on the preliminary card on Fox Sports 1.
UFC on FOX 10 takes place on January 25th from the United Center in Chicago and will be headlined by a lightweight bout as former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson meets former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson.
Elkins (17-3) has won six of his seven fights as a featherweight in the UFC and is coming off a decision win against Hatsu Hioki at UFC Fight Night 27. His only defeat as a UFC featherweight came earlier this year as he was defeated by top featherweight contender Chad Mendes at UFC on FOX 7.
Stephens (22-9) dropped down to the featherweight division earlier this year and has won back to back fights. After winning his featherweight debut at UFC 160, he returned at UFC Fight Night 32 and defeated Rony Jason by knockout in 40 seconds.
