Tim Elliott went on his Twitter and responded to a callout by Henry Cejudo. Long story short, it did NOT go well for Henry Cejudo.
Henry,I am extremely sorry that I beat up your team on "tuf" I am sorry you are so sensitive, and can not take a joke. I am sorry that you are 5 foot 2 inches tall, and have still missed weight several times. There is no benefit fighting a boring wrestler that can't make weight.

It started when Elliott was looking for his next opponent and the name Eddie Wineland came up. Elliott liked it and thought it would be an exciting show for the fans. However, when he tweeted about it, He let Mr Cejudo know that Wineland’s style makes for a better fight.
“That’s a fight (Eddie Wineland) I can get excited about!! Let’s do it. What do you think? No offense Henry Cejudo, you’re just boring!”
Cejudo responded on the MMA Hour today by saying that “Arrogant Tim Elliott needed to be humbled”. Hence, why the mean tweet from Elliott. All remain opponent-less and we know that the UFC aren’t really big on fighters playing matchmaker on Twitter. This should be an interesting one to see how it plays out.
