Tim Elliot didn’t go quietly into the night despite being a heavy underdog to UFC featherweight champion Demetrious Johnson at The Ultimate Fighter 24 finale on Saturday night.

Elliot tried hard to submit Johnson in a guillotine choke in the first round and was on defense for the following four rounds, however, he stayed in the fight for all five rounds. This was one of DJ’s toughest UFC featherweight title defenses to date.
