Elliott talks fight with Johnson on Facebook Live



Fresh off his historic victory on the season finale of The Ultimate Fighter season 24, Tim Elliott went live on Facebook to talk about the season and his title shot Saturday night in Las Vegas against Demetrious Johnson.

Elliott talked about his matchup with the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter on the planet and how he plans to beat “Mighty Mouse.”

“I’m gonna try to hit him in the face more than he hits me in the face. Get awkward, get funky and make it ugly,” Elliott said “(I need to) take the technique out of it, take the martial arts out of it and get in a fist fight.”

Watch Elliott on the Facebook live chat at the top of the page and don’t miss him on FS1 Saturday night when he goes to battle against the best in the business.
