UFC 131 continues to take shape as a featherweight contest is in the works for the event.
Elkins is coming off of his first loss in the UFC, when he was submitted by Jiu Jitsu ace Charles Oliviera this past August. He did defeat Duane Ludwig in his UFC debut, though. The wrestler reportedly walks around at 160 pounds, making the cut down to 145 seem relatively easy.
He will be making his debut against veteran fighter Michihiro Omigawa. Omigawa is now apart of the UFC for the second time after a failed lightweight run in 2007 and 2008. He made his featherweight debut with the promotion earlier this month when he lost to Chad Mendes via decision at UFC 126. The judokan was out wrestled and out struck for the duration of the bout.
The bout is expected to take place on the preliminary portion of the card.
