Tim Elliott dominated Jordan Espinosa at UFC 259; however, the biggest story coming out of the fight is an accusation of domestic abuse Elliott appeared to levy against his opponent mid-match.
Towards the end of the second round, Elliott had Espinosa on his back against the fence. That is when he hurled accusations against Espinosa that left the UFC commentators stunned.

“I heard you choked a girl in 2018," Elliott told Espinosa while grinding his face with a forearm. "You little woman beater? You a little fuckin' woman beater. She messaged me."
“Did She? You don’t know the whole story," Espinosa replied.
"I know enough," Elliott retorted.
“You don’t know shit," Espinosa said in response.
The round came to an end shortly after. The referee appeared to whisper something to Elliott about remaining professional between rounds two and three.
Elliot ultimately earned a clear unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-25).
