Jay Hieron returned to the UFC in October for the first time after an eight-year absence from the promotion. Unfortunately, he dropped a unanimous decision to Jake Ellenberger at UFC on FX 5. Hieron participated in one of Bellator’s welterweight tournaments, and won a shot at the title, but came up short and lost a unanimous decision to Ben Askren.

Tyron Woodley came up short on his first chance at a world title, when he lost to Nate Marquardt in the fourth round via knockout at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs Kennedy in one of the more classic fights in all of 2012. The loss snapped a ten-fight win streak to begin his career, which included decision wins over Tarec Saffiedine, Paul Daley, and Jordan Mein.
