UFC fighter Kajan Johnson and ET Canada online writer Shakiel Mahjouri invite MMA’s most colourful personalities to share crazy, entertaining and personal stories.
Elias Thedorou rolls into the ‘Pull No Punches Podcast’ campaigning for a fight vs. Derek Brunson at a rumored April or May event in Canada. Theodorou responds to Brunson’s “chump change” comments by promising he will “make more than Derek” by his next fight.
Elias Theodorou: “Derek Brunson is someone who has shown that he fights a little scared. He sometimes lets the win slip out of his hands and I have shown time and time again where I’m someone who can find a win no matter what.”
Elias Theodorou: “If he is underestimating me, it is to his peril… Many people have looked at me and said, ‘look at this long-haired idiot.’ They didn’t get their hands raised.”
Elias Theodorou: “I have heard some of the things he said in different publications. He was undercutting who I’ve fought. He said if I want to move beyond the ‘chump change’ I’m facing than I should fight someone like him. I Googled his earnings and I realized he makes all of $3,000 more than me per fight… “I’m in the process of renegotiating my [UFC] contract and I guarantee you by the time I fight my next fight I’ll be making more than Derek.”
Elias Theodorou: “I think there is definitely something to be said about T.J. Dillashaw being a little bit of a sore loser. He was going down there with the pure intention of killing the [flyweight] division, and unfortunately, to his end he’s the one that got killed.”
