Michael Chiesa returns for the first time, since becoming the winner of 15th season of the Ultimate Fighter. He defeated Al Iaquinta in the first round by rear naked choke in the show’s finale. The win was Chiesa’s eighth career victory in as many professional fights.

Marcus LeVesseur had a disappointing UFC debut, getting submitted by Cody McKenzie’s famous guillotine choke in the first round in May. He bounced back in his most recent fight, earning a split decision victory over Carlo Prater at UFC on FX 5.
