MusclePharm To Sponsor Darren Elkins At UFC 179

October 22, 2014

After a very brief hiatus from their weekly scheduled fights, the UFC is back this Saturday with UFC 179: Jose Aldo versus Chad Mendes 2 for the featherweight title. The fight is live from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at 10pm on PPV, with the prelims live at 8pm on Fox Sports 1 and the early prelims as usual on UFC Fight Pass.


Darren Elkins is the 13th ranked fighter in the featherweight division. On Saturday night, he will face Lucas Martins on the main card with the MusclePharm logo on his shorts. Darren is looking to get back on track and work his way up the featherweight division ladder. We wish him good luck from the VFD Sports Marketing family.


In the co-main event, #4 ranked Glover Teixeira will face #6 ranked Phil Davis in the light heavyweight division. This fight has the ingredients to be explosive. Phil Davis is coming off his loss to Anthony Johnson and is ready to prove that he’s still in the meat of the division. Glover is fighting off a title shot loss, and is ready to get back into the hunt. Both fighters have a lot to prove and this is not a fight to miss.
