After a three-week sabbatical, the UFC returns with the exciting UFC 179 pay-per-view card live from Brazil featuring the Featherweight title fight between Diamond MMA supporter Chad “Money” Mendes and Jose Aldo.


Of course “Money” isn’t the only fighter in Brazil sporting Diamond MMA on fight night. No. 13 ranked Featherweight Darren Elkins, who takes on Lucas Martins on the pay-per-view main card, will be protecting his nuts with Diamond as well!


Elkins comes into this fight on a bit of a slump, losing two of his last three after winning five straight. The UFC didn’t do Elkins any favors by matching him up with the dangerous Martins, but Elkins is more than capable of pulling off the much-needed victory on Saturday night.


If Elkins does get by Martins at UFC 179, he will continue his ascent up the Featherweight ladder in hopes of earning a title shot in 2015.


We here at Diamond MMA want to wish Elkins the best of luck this weekend, and remember, we have your nuts covered Darren!
