    We like to criticize the UFC for bad matchmaking, weak cards, wasted promotional efforts, wmma, etc. But, there are definitely times when they do right by we the people. And generally, they don't get enough credit.

    Elias Theodorou is currently 15-2 as a professional, and 6-2 in the UFC, not including his 2 victories on The Ultimate Fighter en route to winning his season of TUF. So technically 8-2 in the UFC.

    And that beautiful, boring motherfucker is still on the Fight Pass Prelims.

    Shout out to Uncle Bobby Dana. This is a place to celebrate his greatness.

    Jake Shields, Fitch and Okami are somewhere weeping right now.

    he is sentenced to prelims for life because of this:

    Elias Theodorou’s (14-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) average fight time of 13:36 in UFC middleweight competition is the longest among active fighters in the weight class.

    I'm glad he's banished to Prelims...He ruined my perfectly good relationship with Invicta by being a "Ring dude".

    Not good enough

    How about the UFC move his fights to Bellator instead

    Elias is a great fighter, but his style will keep from opportunities, despite his level of success. The UFC will be very reluctant to give him a 5-round main event, and, if it's a possibility, they will think twice before giving him a title shot.

    On the other hand, he's got that Fabio marketability that almost everybody else is missing, so if he ever becomes a more exciting fighter, his $$ ceiling is higher.

    He needs better cardio. He's got to be on the bottom of strikes per round attempted. I'm guessing that's why.

    Elias’s biggest problem is he’s not a hitter. He also fights like a punk azz bitch.

    I honestly don't understand how some people can find their tweets funny. They are all so dull.

    Yeah, Elias isn't a good fighter. He should have lost to Dan Kelly (didn't watch the fight, don't intend to) and acts like he should have won vs Tavares. Theodorou isn't getting any opportunity anytime soon. They should him vs Adesanya if he wins vs Tavares, so Adesanya would ko him.

    Dude is the most annoying tweeter ever. Can't wait until he gets KO'ed and his hair goes flying everywhere.
