A highly anticipated flyweight matchup has been scratched from UFC Fight Night 49, as Tim Elliott (10-5 MMA, 2-3 UFC) has been forced to withdraw from a planned bout with Wilson Reis (17-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

MMAjunkie today learned of the withdrawal from a source close to the fighter who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to publicly discuss such matters. UFC officials are now seeking a replacement opponent for Reis.
