We have two veterans with 33 UFC fights between them for the co-main event in Buenos Aires as Ricardo Lamas takes on Darren Elkins.

Lamas has been a perennial contender but suffered a dip in form of late with two losses on the trot against Josh Emmett and Mirsad Bektic.

Elkins is also coming off a loss (to Alexander Volkanovski) but this was his first defeat in seven fights, showing his usual heart to earn some big wins – one of which was a crazy comeback against Bektic.


This should be a war and as the stats suggest, they are evenly-matched in every department. Expect everything - striking, clinches and takedowns - and as they have the durability and cardio to perform until the last minute, a decision is likely. Which way it goes is tough to call but it is hard to see somebody with the class of Lamas losing three in a row.

Winner: Lamas via Decision
