Cub Swanson got the biggest win in his career at UFC 152 with a stunning first round knockout over Charles Oliveira, which catapulted his name into title consideration. The win was his third in a row, earning TKO finishes against George Roop and Ross Pearson as well.
Dustin Poirier returned to his usual ways at The Ultimate Fighter 16 finale with a first round submission victory over Jonathan Brookins. Previously, he suffered his first lost inside the UFC to the “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung by submission in the fourth round, in what was considered the best fight of 2012. The lost to Jung snapped a five-fight win streak.
