Main Card

Tim Elliott

Tim Elliott is a 33-year-old American fighter that came from Lee’s Summit in Missouri. He stands at five-foot-seven and trains at Glory MMA & Fitness who has a 15-10 record. His 12 victories are split with submissions and decisions. After an impressive outing in Titan FC, Tim Elliot earned his sport in the UFC roster but he was pitted against a tough challenge in his debut facing Demetrious Johnson. He fairly did well pushing Johnson to the brink and lost via unanimous decision. Elliot struggled to stay afloat as he only recorded one victory in his next four matches. He is on a two-fight losing streak heading to this match against Royval and he desperately needs this win to prove he belongs in the UFC.

Brandon Royval

Brandon Royval is a young 27-year-old fighter that hails from Englewood, Colorado. The “Raw Dawg” trains at Factory X and he currently owns a 10-4 professional MMA record with six of those wins coming from submissions. This is going to be Royval’s biggest opportunity in his MMA career as he is set to make his MMA debut. Prior to coming to the organization, he fought in LFA and he made his mark there winning six of his eight matches. In his last two matches, Royval was demonstrating his mat skills and won via submissions through armbars.

Elliott vs Royval Betting Picks

Royval is an intriguing prospect but he has not faced high-level competition like the UFC. With that, the more experienced Elliot is favored to win but Royval is a risky bet according to Online Sportsbook.
