Darren Elkins vs Mirsad Bektic, UFC 209, 4 March 2017
Fight of the Night
Darren Elkins might not be a super star in the sport, but he is definitely one of the toughest. To me, he has become akin to the likes of Scott Jorgensen, Eddie Wineland, and Brad Pickett. Fighters who are extremely talented and accomplished but for one reason or another, simply haven’t been able to break into the upper echelon of their weight divisions. Darren Elkins vs Mirsad Bektic unfortunately isn’t going to help in Darren’s bid for a UFC title shot and MMA stardom, but it does speak volumes to how much heart and experience Darren has.
