An exciting flyweight pairing has been set for UFC 167 as Ali Bagautinov and Tim Elliot are set to meet this November. The bout’s placement on the card is currently unknown at this time. UFC officials announced the move late Wednesday.
Both Bagautinov and Elliot come into the bout off impressive victories in their last outings. Bagautinov picked up a TKO victory in his UFC debut against Marcos Vinicuius at UFC Fight Night 28. Elliot picked up an impressive victory of his own at UFC 164 in Milwaukee by mauling Louis Gaudinot. Elliot will look to secure his third straight victory when he takes on the Dagestani fighter.
UFC 167 will be headlined by a UFC welterweight title fight between champion Georges St-Pierre and Johnny Hendricks. The billing will mark the 20th anniversary of UFC 1, which took place November 12 at the since demolished McNichols Sports Arena in Denver, Colorado. More bouts are expected to be announced soon for the UFC’s 2o-year anniversary card.
