The win was his fourth in a row, including victories over Kendall Grove, Nick Ring, and an incredible third round comeback knockout win against Yushin Okami last February.

Constantinos Philipou lost a unanimous decision to Nick Catone at UFC 128 in his debut, but has since rattled off four consecutive wins inside the octagon. Most recently, he defeated Riki Fukuda by unanimous decision at UFC 148 in a one-sided affair. Other wins in Philipou’s current streak were victories against Jorge Rivera, Jared Hamman, and Court McGee.
