Since dropping to the featherweight division, Darren Elkins has been virtually unstoppable with four-straight unanimous decision victories. Wins include Michihiro Omigawa, Diego Brandao, and most recently Steven Siler at UFC 154.

After a sub-par performance in his UFC debut against Felipe Arantes, Antonio Carvalho has started to find his rhythm inside the UFC with consecutive victories against Daniel Pineda and Rodrigo Damm.

Mitch Gagnon rebounded from a third round submission loss to Bryan Caraway in his UFC debut with a submission victory of his own over Walel Watson at UFC 152. The win was his seventh in eight fights, dating back to May of 2009.

Issei Tamura was impressive in his UFC debut with a stellar second round knockout victory over Tiequan Zhang at UFC 144. He got a big step up in competition in his sophomore appearance in the octagon and came up short, losing to Raphael Assuncao via second round TKO.
