With thirty professional bouts under his belt, Tim Elliot (17-12-1) will be hoping to get back in the win column this weekend. Currently 2-3 in his last five fights, Elliot is coming off of a loss to Matheus Nicolau back in October of 2021. Desperate to come away with the win, Tim Elliot will be doing whatever it takes to get his hand raised.

Currently unbeaten in his last five professional outings, Tagir Ulanbekov (13-1) is a heavy favourite going into this weekend’s showdown with Tim Elliot. Ulanbekov is coming off of a split decision victory against Allan Nascimento back in October of 2021. This time around, Tagir will be aiming to not rely on the judges’ scorecards.


Going into this weekend’s flyweight outing, both men will be coming in at 5’7. However, Tagir has a significant edge in the reach department. All of Tagir’s finishes have come via submission. Therefore, we suspect that Ulanbekov will look to utilize his wrestling and grappling credentials this weekend. However, it’s fair to say that Elliot is no slouch on the mat and is capable of holding his own. Tagir is such a versatile fighter. His striking is crisp, he has great submission attacks and is capable of defending takedowns. It should be a one-sided victory in favour of the Russian.
