Interesting Middleweight fight added to TUF Finale card in July

Talented Middleweights in Brad Tavares and Elias Theodorou will meet.

The second weekend in July will be an MMA fan’s dream. It is part of the UFC’s International fight week and will feature two solid cards of MMA action.  We’ll have the TUF Redemption finale followed by UFC 213.  The finale got a new fight announced and it’s a pretty compelling clash at 185.  Elias Theodorou and Brad Tavares will throw down on the TUF 25 finale.

Brad Tavares (14-4) will be coming off of a victory when he enters the cage, but he’s been on a bit of an inconsistent run as of late. Tavares started his UFC career by going 7-1 in his first 8 fights but has since gone a less impressive 2-3.  He packs a punch and is a threat to anyone he faces. He will undoubtedly need a win in July is he is to be considered a rising star still in the Middleweight division.

Elias Theodorou (13-1) is coming into this fight on a two-fight winning streak. He has only lost once in his 14 professional bouts.  He will be looking to climb in the rankings with a win over Tavares in July. Theodorou is also one of the best follows on social media. His commentary on Twitter during UFC events is legendary.  He’s an excellent fighter and a win over Tavares will almost certainly see Elias break into the top fifteen rankings.
