This past weekend in Las Vegas, the UFC hosted the Ultimate Fighter season 24 Finale, which was headlined by a flyweight title fight between flyweight kingpin Demetrious Johnson, and TUF 24 winner Tim Elliot. In the first round, Elliot left fight fans stunned as he nearly pulled off what arguably could have been the biggest upset in MMA history as he nearly submitted the flyweight champ.

In the co-main event, TUF season 24 coaches Joseph Benavidez and Henry Cejudo squared off in a pivotal flyweight fight. After having a point deducted in the first round, Cejudo controversially lost a split decision, which resulted in UFC President Dana White texting him after the fight, apologizing for the judging.
