Chas Skelly will return to action next Friday night at UFC Fight Night 50, less than two weeks after earning a first round rear-naked choke victory at UFC Fight Night 49.

Skelly has agreed to replace Andre Fili and face Sean Soriano at the card, which takes place September 5 from the Foxwoods Resort Casino. The main event features Gegard Mousasi vs. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza on FOX Sports 1.
