December’s UFC on FOX 26 lineup has a few flyweight addition.
UFC on FOX 26 takes place Dec. 16 at MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It airs on FOX following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass, though the full fight card and bout order haven’t been finalized.
Elliott is just outside the top 15 and is an honorable mention in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA flyweight rankings. Scoggins isn’t ranked.
Elliott, who went 2-4 in his first UFC stint, briefly left the organization for a title reign with Titan FC. The 30-year-old then re-signed with the UFC, won “The Ultimate Fighter 24” to earn a title shot, and then suffered a hard-fought decision loss to champ Demetrious Johnson in December. He’s 1-1 since then with a decision victory over Louis Smolka (in a “Fight of the Night” performance) and a submission defeat to Ben Nguyen.
He meets Scoggins, who could be fighting for his UFC job. After decision wins over Josh Sampo and Ray Borg, the 25-year-old has suffered submission defeats to Pedro Munhoz (at bantamweight) and Ulka Sasaki (in his return to flyweight – and in a bout he was winning early).
