UFC Adds Tim Elliott to Its Flyweight Roster
The UFC's flyweight division continues to take form with the addition of highly regarded 125-pounder Timothy Elliott.
Elliot is the ninth official member of the promotion's newest division and will join Championship Grand Prix participants Joseph Benavidez, Demetrious Johnson, Ian McCall and Yasuhiro Urushitani, TUF alums John Dodson and Louis Gaudinot, and John Lineker and Darren Uyenoyama to fill out the roster.
Since posting a 0-2-1 mark over his first three MMA contests, Elliott has strung together eight consecutive victories, including seven finishes.
The most notable win of Elliott's career came in December of 2011, when he defeated former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver.
He encored that performance by beating MMA veteran Josh Rave in a mere 28 seconds this March.
Elliott is a well-rounded fighter with slick submissions, solid wrestling and good power for the division. He fights aggressively and usually mixes in his takedowns well with his strikes.
As reported by MMAjunkie.com, Elliott will debut in the UFC against John Dodson as part of the UFC on FOX 3 fight card on May 5. He takes the fight as a replacement for Dodson's original opponent, Darren Uyenoyama.
Dodson, a part of Team Mayhem on The Ultimate Fighter Season 14, is one of the more highly regarded fighters in the flyweight division and will be the stiffest test of Elliott's fighting career to date.
