UFC 131 has not yet been announced by the promotion, but is expected to take place June 11 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Several bouts have been strongly rumored for the card, including a heavyweight contest between “The Ultimate Fighter 13” coaches Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos, and former lightweight title challenger Kenny Florian’s 145-pound debut against world-ranked featherweight Diego Nunes.
Elkins (11-2) has competed twice in the UFC, but has spent only 85 seconds fighting in the Octagon. The Indiana native lost the second bout of his career in his most recent outing, as he was armbarred in under a minute by Brazilian prospect Charles Oliveira at August’s UFC Live 2. In his UFC debut, Elkins earned a technical knockout win against veteran Duane Ludwig, who suffered a badly broken ankle 44 seconds into their bout.
