Matt Riddle’s victory over Chris Clements at UFC 149 was overturned last month after Riddle tested positive for marijuana in the post-fight drug screen. The win would have been his second in a row, following a split decision victory over Henry Martinez in February of this year.

John Maguire was successful in his first two appearances in the UFC, defeating Justin Edwards by unanimous decision in his debut and submitting DaMarques Johnson with an armbar at UFC on Fuel TV 2. His seven-fight win streak was snapped in his most recent fight, dropping a unanimous decision to John Hathaway at UFC of Fuel TV 5.
