A great flyweight bout has been added to the upcoming UFC 246 pay-per-view (PPV) card. The show goes down from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 18.

Both Tim Elliott and Askar Askarov have confirmed on their respective social media accounts that they will fight each other on the card, which is headlined by a welterweight bout between the returning Conor McGregor and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.

Elliott has dropped three of his last five. In his last outing, he was bested by Deiveson Figueiredo via first-round submission by way of a guillotine choke at UFC Tampa this past October. He’ll take on Askarov, who is undefeated in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career. His promotional debut took place against Brandon Moreno at UFC Mexico City in September, however, the fight ended in a draw.
