UFC TUF Canada champ Elias Theodorou meets Thiago Santos at UFC Fight Night 80

Canadian Ultimate Fighter winner and undefeated rising Middleweight Elias Theodorou, is slated to face his next opponent at UFC Fight Night 80. “The Spartan” will go head to head with Brazil Ultimate Fighter Alumni, Thiago “Marreta” Santos.

The event takes place on December 10, 2015 at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. The entire card streams on UFC Fight Pass and will be followed by the TUF 22 Finale at the same venue on Dec. 11 and UFC 194 at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Dec. 12.

Theodorou won the “TUF: Nations” season of “The Ultimate Fighter” at middleweight, stopping Sheldon Westcott with a second-round TKO in the finals back in April 2014. He has since gone on a two-fight win streak with a decision win over Bruno Santos 11 months ago, and in March at UFC 185, he stopped Roger Narvaez with a second-round TKO to stay unbeaten. He will be looking for his third-straight come December.

Santos is coming off of a UFC Fight Night 69 “performance bonus” victory with a swift 29-second head kick knockout of fellow Canadian, Steve Bosse. He is looking to nab another win under his belt when he locks horns with Theodorou.
