Injuries have kept Edwin Figueroa out of competition since February, when he won a hard-fought split decision over Alex Caceres at UFC 143. The win was his second victory in a row, also taking out Jason Reinhardt with a second round TKO in August of last year. Figueroa’s only career lost was a unanimous decision defeat to current #1 contender, Michael McDonald in his UFC debut.
Francisco Rivera earned a first round knockout victory at UFC 149 over Roland Delorme, but was later overturned after testing positive for a banned substance and suspended for 90-days. The win would have been his fourth consecutive victory, previously beating Brad McDonald, Antonio Duarte, and Alex Soto.
