Tim Elliott has quickly been re-booked for a bout, after a scheduled fight at UFC on FOX 26 fell through, as the UFC’s announced he’ll take on Mark Delarosa on December 30th.

Elliott was supposed to fight Pietro Menga at the December 16th event, but the latter ran into medical issues while cutting weight, and was unable to get below 131 pounds. The flyweight contender reportedly declined to face Menga in a catchweight bout.

The 24 winner is looking to get back on track, after Elliott (14-8-1) was submitted by Ben Nguyen in June.

Delarosa, meanwhile, will be making his Octagon debut armed with a record of 9-0.

UFC 219 will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
