Connelly (14-7) made his UFC debut in 2019 when he shocked the world up a weight class and beat Michel Pereira. In his sophomore appearance he lost a unanimous decision to Pat Sabatini at UFC 261. Following that bout, “Boondock” underwent neck surgery and has been out of action since April 2021.

Elkins (26-10) lost his last outing, as Cub Swanson finished him via TKO in midway through the first round. In his last 7 fight, “The Damage” is 2-5. His last victory was a second round ground and pound TKO against Darrick Minner in July 2021.

The April 30 Fight Night event  takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and streams on ESPN+.
