UFC on Fox 10 tabs Elkins vs. Stephens

Two featherweights were picked as the first official fight for the upcoming UFC on Fox 10.

Darren Elkins (16-3) will meet face Jeremy Stephens (22-9) at UFC on FOX 10 in Chicago, FoxSports.com reported on Friday.

Stephens is coming of a show-stopping performance in Brazil. He won for the second straight time since dropping down to featherweight when he dropped Rony Jason with a head kick just 40 seconds into the fight.

Elkins rebounded from KO loss to Chad Mendes to win by unanimous decision win over Hatsu Hioki at UFC Fight Night 27.

UFC on FOX 10 takes place Jan. 25 at Chicago’s United Center. The main card will air, obviously, on FOX following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and MMAjunkie. Tickets for the event are expected to go on sale in early December.

The headliner for the card could come as early as this weekend.

Any guesses on whom that may be?
