You may not know James Moontasri, but he could’ve become your new favorite fighter had he not fought on a card that was watched by only a few people who weren’t burned out by 12 hours of UFC action.
Mr. Moontasri has a hell of a fight with Joe Ellenberger, a fight he lost by split-decision, but he made it interesting by attempting a people’s elbow. Yes.
He said this to Sherdog:
“I like to stay active, so I’ll want to fight as soon as possible,” Moontasri said. “I tried to do the ‘People’s Elbow’ like The Rock at one point. Maybe I should have done whatever the judges wanted to see, but I don’t know what that is. I’m just glad I put on a good show for my debut.”
My kingdom for a replay or a .gif. Does anyone have one?
