Elliott faced champion Demetrious Johnson at the TUF 24 Finale, which was a bout he earned by winning the season’s flyweight tournament. Johnson went on to win the Las Vegas bout, however,  via unanimous decision.

According the salaries that were disclosed to the Nevada Commission via the UFC, Elliott was paid $100,000 for the bout. Johnson, on the other hand, earned $350,000.
