Darren Elkins vs. Hatsu Hioki set for UFC on Fox Sports 1: Condit vs. Kampmann

USA TODAY Sports

Featherweights Darren Elkins and Hatsu Hioki will fight at UFC on FS1: Condit vs. Kampmann in Indianapolis.

A featherweight clash between Darren Elkins and Hatsu Hioki has been booked for the UFC's Fox Sports 1 card on Wednesday, August 28th in Indianapolis. Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com broke the news late last night.

Elkins (16-3) compiled a 5-0 record at featherweight, and was given a big opportunity to step in and fight Chad Mendes on short notice at UFC on Fox 7. He took the fight only a month after TKOing Antonio Carvalho at UFC 158, but Elkins ended up on the wrong end of a TKO vs. Mendes.

Hioki (26-6-2) was regarded as the best featherweight outside of the UFC when he was signed in 2011. Outside of his win over Bart Palaszewski at UFC 144, he's not really backed up that claim. Hioki dropped his last two fights to Ricardo Lamas and (controversially) Clay Guida.

UFC on FS1 2 is headlined by a welterweight rematch between Carlos Condit and Martin Kampmann.
