A featherweight bout between Hatsu Hioki and Darren Elkins is being targeted for UFC on FOX Sports 1 2. ESPN first reported the prospective matchup.
Darren Elkins comes into the bout after suffering his first loss since dropping to featherweight against Chad Mendes at UFC on FOX 7. Elkins had won five straight fights prior to his loss to Mendes on less than a month’s notice. Hatsu Hioki comes into the bout in need of a victory after two straight losses, the most recent one coming against Clay Guida via a dubious split decision at UFC on FOX 6.
UFC on FS1 2 will take place August 28 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The card is currently set to be headlined by a rematch between Carlos Condit and Martin Kampmann. Tickets go on sale for the August show on June 14.
