UFC 164 hosts a key bout between entertaining flyweights Louis Gaudinot and Tim Elliott. The winner could be another candidate to meet Demetrious Johnson in a title bout.
Gaudinot hasn't fought in a year, but his last outing saw him choke out John Lineker. The green-haired warrior has the well-rounded skill set and personality to win over fans.
Elliott proved his worth and skill in his latest win over Jared Papazian. He is an iron-jawed, aggressive fighter with good wrestling and solid on-the-feet ability.
Sure, they may not be the first fighters that come to mind in the title picture, but with the lack of depth in the division, a win at any time makes you a candidate for a title bout.
