Tim Elliott will face rising flyweight Su Mudaerji at the upcoming UFC Fight Night event on June 26, multiple people with knowledge of the booking told MMA Fighting following a report from MMAjunkie.

Elliott (17-11-1) won back-to-back fights in the UFC with decisions over Ryan Benoit and Jordan Espinosa after a three-fight skid between 2019 and 2020. The Ultimate Fighter winner and one-time title contender won four of six since re-signing with the UFC in 2016.

Mudaerji (14-4) had a rough start in the company by losing to Louis Smolka at bantamweight, but bounced back with a decision over Andre Soukhamthath before cutting down to 125 pounds and defeating Malcolm Gordon and Zarrukh Adashev in his most recent appearances.

The UFC has yet to announce the location for the Fight Night event as well as the headlining attraction.
