UFC 228 Videos: Fight Motion, Thrill And Agony

Darren Elkins pulled off a comeback for the ages this past Saturday.

His nickname is “The Damage” for a good reason, apparently, and Elkins (22-5 MMA, 12-4 UFC) took plenty of it in the first round of his featherweight fight at UFC 209 against Mirsad Bektic (11-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC). He was a bloody mess thanks to punches and elbows. But that didn’t stop him from fighting into the second.

And in the third, Elkins, who was the biggest underdog on the card against the previously unbeaten Bektic, shocked everyone when he landed a right hand, then a head kick against the cage that put Bektic down and gave him a come-from-behind win that will be talked about for a long time.

The UFC’s “Thrill and Agony” videos take us up close and behind the scenes of pay-per-view events, and at UFC 209, the reactions from Elkins, his corner and the UFC broadcast team are worth checking out.

UFC 209 took place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card aired on pay-per-view after prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

In the main event, Tyron Woodley (17-3-1 MMA, 7-2-1 UFC) retained his welterweight title with a majority decision win over Stephen Thompson (13-2-1 MMA, 8-2-1 UFC). And while the fight wasn’t as exciting as many wanted, the “Thrill and Agony” video will help you understand just what was on the line when you watch the families of both fighters before and after the result was read in the cage. As you’ll see, the loss was a devastating one for Thompson, and a reason to be relieved for Woodley.

The video above is a preview of “Thrill and Agony.” UFC Fight Pass subscribers can now watch the entire episode, which eventually will make its way to YouTube.
