Elliott earned his shot at the title in the UFC's "the Ultimate Fighter" reality television show, and he has the chance to try to pull off one of the biggest upsets in UFC history. Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson is one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters in the world, and Tim can potentially become the next UFC flyweight champion. Johnson returns to the UFC octagon after an eight-month break to defend his belt in the Ultimate Fighter 24 finale. It all takes place on Saturday, December 3 at The Pearl Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tim Elliott was cut from the UFC before

MMA Weekly reported that Tim wasn't ready when he was first signed to the UFC in 2015.

He lost three fights in a row to Benavidez, Bagautinov, and Dodson. His boxing skills were very basic at that time, so he lost his UFC contract. Although his first UFC opportunity ended in a painful manner, Elliott immediately joined the Titan FC and won the organization's flyweight belt. And, he obtained three wins with that company before joining "The Ultimate Fighter" cast. Over the course of the "TUF" season, Tim picked up another four wins --- including a victory over Japan’s Hiromasa Ogikubo in the tournament finale.

Tim Elliot said he would rise to the occasion against "Mighty Mouse"

Anything can happen inside the UFC cage, but Tim has an almost unthinkable task.

Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson has never been knocked out or submitted in MMA competition, and he has eight consecutive UFC title defenses. His submission of Kyoji Horiguchi at UFC 186 stands as the latest stoppage in a UFC fight. He is one of two fighters in UFC history to earn two fifth-round stoppage victories.

Moreover, Johnson announced he wants to break all standing records in the UFC, mainly the all-time title defense record, which he’s just three fights shy of breaking. Can Tim Elliot do the impossible and stop Johnson?

Tim Elliot was unranked at 125 pounds at the start of the reality television show. And now, three months later, he’s facing the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world.

Can he pull off this once in a lifetime opportunity?
