Tim Elliott
Injury Knee
Est. Return 4/1/2019
Undergoes knee surgery
June 19, 2018
Elliott recently underwent right knee surgery, Brett Okamoto of ESPN reports.
Elliott reportedly tore every ligament and meniscus in the knee, so it's a fairly significant development and the 32-year-old is in line for a lengthy absence moving forward. There's yet to be any sort of update on a timetable, but it's safe to assume Elliott won't be back in the Octagon until well into 2019. Elliott most recently secured a bounce-back submission win over Mark Delarosa in December at UFC 219, bringing his career record to 15-8.

Cruises to easy victory at UFC 219
December 30, 2017
Elliott defeated Mark Delarosa via submission (anaconda choke) at 1:41 of Round 2 at UFC 219 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Fighting with a heavy heart due to the recent passing of his former coach Robert Follis, Elliott dominated an overmatched Delarosa in all aspects of the fight. He landed his only takedown attempt and was credited with a 54-4 edge in the total strike department. Elliott remains one of the most underrated fighters in the company and he should continue to make noise in a thin flyweight division.
Takes on Mark Delarosa next weekend
December 20, 2017
Elliott will face Mark Delarosa at UFC 219 in Las Vegas on December 30, Thomas Gerbasi of UFC.com reports.
Elliott will earn an opportunity to fight in December after all, following a debacle that left him without a partner for Winnipeg's card, due to Justin Scoggins' injury and Pietro Menga's inability to make weight. In his most recent bout, Elliott was bested by Ben Nguyen via submission in June, but is looking to get back on track against a newcomer in Delarosa. "The Bumblebee" will be making his first appearance in the promotion, and holds a perfect 9-0 record a professional, with his latest victory occuring at Combate 15 in late June against Mahatma Chit-Bala Garcia Avalos.
Will not fight at Winnipeg
December 15, 2017
Elliott's fight at UFC on Fox 26 on Dec. 16 in Winnipeg will not occur following Pietro Menga's failure to cut weight, Mike Bohn of USA Today Sports reports.
It appears as though Menga had some kidney problems after attempting to go from 155 pounds a couple weeks ago, to just 126 ahead of this bout. Elliott was originally slated to face off against Justin Scoggins, but he withdrew due to a spine injury, and now the 30-year-old will have to wait for his next opportunity within the promotion. During the course of 2017, Elliott defeated Louis Smolka via unanimous decision in April, and fell to Ben Nguyen in June.

September 7, 2017
