Elves Brener was ready for the toughest fight possible as he stepped into the cage to face Swedish-Georgian lightweight Guram Kutateladze this past Saturday.

“When I woke up this morning, I just knew that this fight was going to be a war. I mean, he is a tough guy. He is into wars and he comes at you and he brings the war to you. I just decided to actually take the war to him,” Brener revealed at the post-fight press conference.

The fight turned out to be a back-and-forth battle, where both fighters gave more than everything, and was awarded with the 50 000 dollar Fight of the Night bonus.

“(A post-fight bonus would be) a life changer for myself, especially coming back, coming from humble beginnings, and for my family. But you know what? It’s a start. A lot of good things are still about to happen.”

The massive performance against the dangerous Kutateladze definitely put the Brazilian fighter on the map, and now he wants a high-profile fight against Paddy Pimblett next.

Elves Brener made his promotional debut at UFC 284 in Februray as he defeated Zubaira Tukhugov via split decision. The 25-year-old Brazilian has a pro MMA record of 15-3.
