  1. Once looked at as a fighter with so much potential, Elias Theodorou (17-3), who won The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs. Australia back in 2013, went on to compete in the UFC and tally up an impressive 8-3 record while with the popular promotion. He was cut in 2019 after a decision loss to Derek Brunson and is currently a free agent. The former UFC middleweight Elias Theodorou has been advocating for a TUE (THERAPEUTIC USE EXEMPTIONS) for medical cannabis from USADA for a couple years and recently set Mixed Martial Arts history in February of 2020, when he became the first MMA fighter to receive a TUE exemption for medical cannabis. His style was unorthodox and may not have been the Nick or Nate Diaz fan friend style, but no one can hate Elias for what he has stood for and the fact he actually was a competitor, who beat some top notch guys in the UFC. Will we ever see Elias in the UFC, who knows, but one thing we know is, he might have changed MMA forever for fighters.

  2. Everybody is spitting hate at Elias. Yes, I hated watching his fights at times. When you go back and break it down, his opponents hated fighting him more than anyone hated watching him because he would shut down their game. If ET could develop some unique offense, he would be pretty damn hard to beat.

  3. Yep you're right first mma fighter that also was a ring card boi. You forgot about that, or were we all supposed to have forgotten about that?

  4. Super questionable move by the ufc. On the other hand I get that Elias has boring ass fights and doesnt do anything to promote interest in his fights and who knows maybe they felt some type of way about him going after the weed use thing. Either way much hespect for standing his ground and I wish him the best cuz he seems like a good dude

  5. Most fucking boring fighter ever. I can sit through fights of Jake shields, Jon fitch, Yushin Okami etc… but this fucking cunt puts me to sleep

  6. He certainly did change MMA forever for the fighters. He showed exactly how not to fight if you still want a job in the UFC.

    The man deserves hespect for that. Gracefully gave up his job for the greater good.

  7. I've seen his tweets… never seen his fights. Honestly thought he was a UFC reporter for the longest time

  8. Not intended to be disrespectful but the guy Twittering is more than the fights he has. Hopefully he will fix it up and fight again in the ufc

  9. These haters are a joke. All jumping on a bandwagon and regurgitating whatever the last guy said just to shit on someone who achieved more than they ever will. You don't even have to like the guy to respect what it takes to fight at the highest levels of MMA, but at least have the basic decency to not act like a bunch of smartass little brats until you can do something better.

  10. We gotta respect the fighters. It's easy for us to judge, but he would man bun bust your ass up. I'm not gonna disrespect this man or question anything about him. Dude likes to flip and be a loon during fights so it's exciting. Diego was getting tuned up until the DQ

  11. All these haters in the comments. He fought world class fighters in the UFC’s arguably most stacked division. Came out 8-3 too. And he doesn’t talk like a Diaz bro. Sounds like a successful career to me.

  13. Might not change it technically but might change it medically for some fighters by pushing legalization of marijuana use outside the octagon,

  14. Yes! He absolutely changed the sport of mma by being the most stupidly boring ass fighter to have ever stepped inside the cage. Congrats to him!

  15. Elias Theodorou is the opposite of a fighter with clean, crisp striking. He throws punches and kicks from a mile away, his biggest talent is elusiveness, and durability.
