Erik Koch was slated to face UFC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo earlier this month, but an injury suffered during training forced him out of the fight. He earned a title shot on the heels of a four-fight win streak which includes victories over Francisco Rivera, Raphael Assuncao, and TUF winner Jonathan Brookins.

Ricardo Lamas catapulted himself in to title consideration with an upset victory over Hatsu Hioki at UFC on FX 4. The win was his third consecutive victory in octagon, which also includes wins against Matt Grice and Cub Swanson.

Erik Perez has gotten his UFC career off to a fast start, earning first round stoppage victories in his first two fights in the UFC against John Albert and Ken Stone. He hasn’t lost a fight in two years and currently holds a seven-fight win streak.

Byron Bloodworth was unsuccessful in his UFC debut, losing in the second round to Mike Easton via TKO at UFC Live on Versus 6. The loss to Easton snapped a three-fight win streak, with his last victory being a second round knockout of Scott Farhat in August of last year.
