Iuri Alcantara drops to the bantamweight division after suffering his first loss since November of 2009, snapping a 13-fight win streak. He began his UFC career with two consecutive unanimous decision victories over Felipe Arantes and Michihiro Omigawa, but most recently dropped a decision to promotional newcomer Hacran Dias at UFC 147.

Pedro Nobre tried to get on the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil”, but was ousted in the elimination round by Marcos Vinicius Borges via first round knockout. He’s won three out his last four fights in Brazil’s regional circuit, including a first round TKO victory over fellow prospect, Matheus Nicolau Pereira at Bitetti Combat 13 last December.
