Tim Elliott vs Su Mudaerji Set for June 26th
Tim Elliott (17-11-1, 7-8-0 UFC) is in the midst of his second stint in the UFC. This time though, he appears to be truly entering his peak. The 34-year-old has won two straight bouts via decision – including a very dominant performance over Jordan Espinosa. The #10 ranked flyweight has fought the very best the division has to offer, from Demetrious Johnson to Deiveson Figueiredo. Now, he hopes to climb back up into contender status.
Su Mudaerji (14-4-0, 3-1-0 UFC) is a 5’8″ flyweight with a 72″ reach. Over the course of his three fight win streak, “The Tibetan Eagle” has demonstrated heavy hands for the division – most notably against Malcolm Gordon. Sitting at #13 in the rankings, Mudaerji will have the chance to crack the top-10 with a win over Elliott. At just 25 years old, it’s clear that he has a lot of potential.
Tim Elliott vs Su Mudaerji adds to a UFC Fight Night 191 that’s still in need of a headliner. As of now, the card looks like this:
- Light Heavyweight: Ovince St. Preux vs Maxim Grishin
- Middleweight: Anthony Hernandez vs Punahele Soriano
- Light Heavyweight: Ed Herman vs Danilo Marques
- Flyweight: Tim Elliott vs Su Mudaerji
