After dominating the first round, Theodorou was able to bring a winded and slowed Narvaez (7-2) down early in the second. He continued to hammer away, earning the stoppage victory.

Theodorou was also able to earn a stoppage victory in the finals of TUF when he defeated Sheldon Westcott in the second round. His next bout was a decision triumph vs. Bruno Santos.

“Mentally, I knew I was beating him,” Theodorou said. “Fear was not a factor.”
