Jordan Espinosa’s team and Tim Elliott have both addressed the allegations made by Elliot towards Espinosa during their UFC 259 bout.

“Back in 2018, woman beater. She messaged me.” Espinosa then replied: "You don’t know the whole story.” Elliott concluded by stating: “I know enough.”

Espinosa’s manager, Bryan Hamper of SuckerPunch Ent., issued the following statement to MMA Junkie on the matter and condemned Elliot for the unfounded accusations.

“We will not be commenting on Tim Elliott’s accusations,” Hamper said. “It is extremely unfortunate that an athlete who has no information of the situation is given a platform to recklessly slander another athlete with no credible information other than a (Facebook) message. It sets a dangerous precedent allowing this type of behavior to make headlines. Words matter.”

Elliot elaborated more after the fight and admitted it wasn't something he wanted to declare to the public as "I don't know the whole story" on what may or may not have happened.

"I didn't say that for anybody else to hear, because I don't know the whole story. It's not something I wanted the whole world to hear. That was supposed to be between him and I. I didn't know the mic was going to pick up on it," Elliot said to the media post-UFC 259 (h/t TMZ Sports).
