Leonard Garcia is in desperate need of a victory, losing three consecutive fights inside the UFC. Garcia’s last win was a controversial split decision victory against Nam Phan in December of 2010. He has since lost consecutive fights to Chan Sung Jung, Nam Phan, and most recently a unanimous decision defeat to Matt Grice at UFC on FX 3.
Cody McKenzie dropped to the featherweight after a 2-2 stint in the UFC 155-pound division. In his 145-pound debut, he met on the division’s elite fighters in Chad Mendes and was knocked out by a body punch just 31 seconds into the first round. Twelve of McKenzie’s thirteen career victories have come by way of his modified guillotine choke.
