Once in talks of title consideration, Evan Dunham looks to stay relevant atop the UFC lightweight division following his unanimous decision loss to TJ Grant at UFC 152. The loss was his third in five fights, but the loss to Sean Sherk in September of 2010 was highly controversial. Dunham had wins over Shamar Bailey and Nik Lentz before his “Fight of the Night” defeat to Grant.

Gleison Tibau rebounded from his first lost in four fights, with a impressive unanimous decision win over Francisco Trinaldo at UFC 153. He previously lost a closely-contested decision to Khabib Nurmagomedov, a fight which many people believe Tibau should have got the nod.
