Jon Fitch earned his first win since August of 2010 when he defeated rising star Erick Silva by unanimous decision at UFC 153. With the victory, he rebounded from only his second loss in sixteen fights in the UFC, which was a surprising 12-second knockout loss by the hands of Johny Hendricks. Previous to that, Fitch fought to a controversial draw against BJ Penn, a fight many believe Fitch should have earned the win.

Demian Maia is 2-0 since dropping the welterweight division, after a 6-4 record in the 185-pound division. Most recently he easily dispatched of Rick Story with a neck crank submission in the first round at UFC 153. Maia also beat Dong Hyun Kim in just 47-seconds after Kim suffered a rib injury in a Maia take down attempt.
