Michihiro Omigawa vs. Darren Elkins at UFC 131 in Vancouver, BC, Canada

Top rated Japanese star, Michihiro Omigawa and former lightweight fighter, Darren Elkins will meet in a featherweight bout at UFC 131 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on June 11th, 2011.

Omigawa will be looking for a quick rebound from a UFC 126 decision loss just this month after returning to the octagon following an 8-1 stint in Japan. He will be looking to turn things around especially after his spell last time with the UFC, which ended with back-to-back losses.

Elkins suffered his first loss inside the octagon when he squared off with Charles Oliveira on the UFC on Versus 2 card late last summer. Prior to that he’d strung together three wins on the bounce including a promotional debut win over Duane “Bang” Ludwig.
