Round 1 - Yves Lavigne oversees this featherweight bout. Elkins is unbeaten at 145 pounds. Carvalho tries to land body shots after Elkins lands a few. Elkins shoots for a takedown, and Carvalho fights it off along the cage. He lands a few punches as Carvalho tries to break. Carvalho lands a left hook, though. Again Carvalho counters with the left hook as Elkins tries to get inside. Carvalho, a former soccer player, kicks for the first time in the fight and puts Elkins a little off balance. But as Elkins shoots in, he ties things up and goes to work to the body. Carvalho breaks off, but eats a punch. Carvalho tries to kick high, but it's off the mark. Elkins lands inside, and Carvalho's in trouble. Elkins lands a left hook, then a right hand, and Carvalho goes down. Lavigne quickly steps in and stops the fight. It looks like it might be a little early. But it's too late. It's over, and Elkins has his first stoppage win at featherweight in the UFC. Darren Elkins def. Antonio Carvalho via TKO (punches) - Round 1, 3:06
