Mixed martial arts career
The Ultimate Fighter
Eliot appeared on season 8 of The Ultimate Fighter. To be a castmember for the rest of the season he had to win his bout against Karn Grigoryan in the elimination round. Eliot lost the fight via a controversial split decision that shocked all spectators leaving many to believe that the judges thought Marshall was Grigoryan. Before Eliot left it was announced that a few fighters would be unable to continue onto the show, with Karn being one of them. Needing a replacement, Eliot was given a second chance.
Eliot got his match against Bader, but lost the fight by unanimous decision.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Eliot Marshall was expected to face Chris McNally at the Nemesis Fighting: MMA Global Invasion at the Hard rock in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, but event was postponed to avoid a storm. The fight was rescheduled for December 10, 2010.
Return to the UFC
Eliot and his wife had their first child, a boy, in December 2009. After retiring from professional competition, Eliot took over the head coach position of Team Elevation with notable students like two-time UFC Bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw, Curtis Blaydes, Alistair Overeem, Neil Magny among others.
