Nicolau said in his post-fight interview. “I wanna keep evolving and stuff like that, but as soon as I feel ready I’ll talk with my coaches and everybody. I don’t want to spend a long time without fighting, I’d like to keep a good pace fighting.”

Matheus Nicolau knows the magnitude of a win over Tim Elliott

The streaking flyweight grew up watching his UFC Vegas 39 opponent compete, but he had to put that aside once the octagon door was closed. Nicolau realizes what it means to defeat someone with Elliott’s pedigree.

“While we were fighting I was not thinking anything about that, he was just an opponent, just like any other,” he replied. “But for sure, after the fight and before the fight when they offered it, we thought man this is huge for me, this is huge for my career, and huge for my martial arts.”

Nicolau is accumulating quite an impressive resume with wins over Louis Smolka, Manel Kape, and now Elliott. He believes he has what it takes to reach championship heights in the UFC, and it appears as though he’d like to fight once more by year’s end.
