Remember when Benavidez choked out Elliot by mounted guillotine and the only way he could tap was by shaking his legs furiously cause his arms were trapped...that was brutal

Congrats to Elliot. He was my pick to win the thing. Although, I just don't see how he can beat MM. I wonder what the odds will be for this fight?

And side note. Get Hiromasa in there! Dude is a gamer. And an absolute sweetheart. Possibility for a fan base there.

i was hoping to see a flyweight tear through the tournament with all finishes, instead this guy got mostly decision wins and a questionable 1, he doesent get me excited for this fight at all, i wish they had got flyweights like Peter Menga 13-0, Magomed Bibulatov 13-0 and Kairat Akhmetov 23-0 to fight in that seaon of TUF
