An intriguing featherweight fight has been added to UFC on FOX 25.

Dennis Bermudez (16-6) vs. Darren Elkins (22-5) is scheduled to take place on the July 22 card on Long Island, N.Y., MMA Fighting has learned.

Bermudez, a native of Long Island, will look to rebound after his February loss to Chan Sung Jung. Prior to that fight, “The Menace” had won two fights in a row.

Elkins has won four in a row, including an incredible comeback win over Mirsad Bektić at UFC 209 in March. A win over Bermudez would tie Elkins’ longest winning streak in the UFC (5).

The event, which will mark the UFC’s debut at the Nassau Coliseum, will be headlined by Chris Weidman vs. Kelvin Gastelum.
