Elliot Out, Sanchez In Against Reis At UFC Fight Night Tulsa

Timothy Elliot will no longer be part of the UFC Fight Night Tulsa event next week, as the UFC Flyweight contender suffered an injury during training, forcing him to pull out of the fight.

As a result, Albuquerque newcomer Joby Sanchez will fill in, taking the fight against Wilson Reis in short notice.

Sanchez is a 23-year-old unbeaten prospect, with all six of his wins coming by way of knockout or submission. Reis, on the other hand, is a UFC veteran who is making his debut in the 125-pound weight class.

UFC Fight Night Tulsa takes place on August 23, 2014 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
