Elliot pressured the bout from the get-go with multiple high kicks. King of the North put his Croatian counterpart down with a right hand. However, Batur stayed in the bout. Referee Herb Dean did a phenomenal job and gave a chance to the UFD gym fighter to recover.

The British fighter kept attacking, but the tables turned when the three-win-streak riding heavyweight took Elliot down. A gassed Akurei MMA Academy standout had no answers for the ground and pound of Batur.

“It means a lot to me, my family,” Batur thanked Chatri Sityodtong after receiving the $50K bonus.
