UFC Fight Night 27: Condit vs. Kampmann kicked off the UFC's first card on Fox Sports 2 with a dominating performance from Jason High as he looked to recover from a quick submission loss in his UFC debut.

High came out fast and got in on James Head's neck off a takedown and from there he was relentless in pursuit of the submission. His first attempt failed as the fighters were too close to the fence and High couldn't get position. High let go of the sub, but stayed on Head and as they moved away from the cage locked in a nasty guillotine from mount that had Head tapping in seconds.

In the Fox Sports 2 second fight of the card perennial featherweight hopeful Hatsu Hioki took on Darren Elkins. Hioki came out strong early, switching stances and throwing body kicks out of a right lead. Elkins looked badly hurt and appeared to be struggling with Hioki's striking. Hioki tried to take the fight to the mat at the end of round one however, and in the long run it proved his undoing. After surviving the first round Elkins came out strong and pushed Hioki with boxing into the clinch. From there he was able to stifle much of Hioki's guard work and submission offense with constant ground and pound. He took the second half of the second round and all of the third for a clear unanimous decision victory.
