John Makdessi is healed up and ready to go.

After breaking his jaw in a fight with Donald Cerrone at UFC 187 in May, Makdessi is booked for a fight once again, this time with Yancy Medeiros at UFC 194 on Dec. 12 in Las Vegas, the UFC announced Friday.

Makdessi (13-4) fought Cerrone on short notice after knocking out Shane Campbell less than a month earlier at UFC 186. The Canada native fell to Cerrone via second-round TKO when he voluntarily stopped the action due to a broken jaw. Makdessi, 30, has won four of his last six fights.

Medeiros (11-3, 1 NC) is coming off a first-round TKO against Dustin Poirier in June. Before that, the Hawaii native had won two in a row, both by impressive submission. Medeiros, 27, trains with Nick and Nate Diaz in the Bay Area of California.

UFC 194 will be headlined by a featherweight title fight between champion Jose Aldo and interim champ Conor McGregor. In the co-main event, Chris Weidman defends his middleweight belt against Luke Rockhold. The card will take place at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
