Darren Elkins has fought the who’s who throughout his career, but still has the desire to continue evolving. Elkins (25-9 MMA, 15-8 UFC) was able to snap a four-fight losing skid with a much-needed win submission of Eduardo Garagorri in November and looks to keep the momentum going when he meets Darrick Minner (26-11 MMA, 2-1 UFC) at UFC on ESPN 27 on Saturday. At one point, Elkins had one of the most impressive runs in the division, until he ran into current UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski. So with a new wave of talent coming in at 145 pounds, the 37-year-old knows he has to keep improving or he’ll be left behind.
