Papy Abedi likely fights for his job in the UFC on the heels of a two-fight losing streak. He began his career a perfect 8-0 before signing with the UFC in November of 2011. Since then, Abedi has back-to-back first round submission losses to Thiago Alves and James Head.

Besam Yousef made his UFC debut in his home country of Sweden, but fell short, losing by second round rear naked choke to Simeon Thoresen at UFC on Fuel TV 2. The loss snapped a six-fight win streak, five of which, came by way of stoppages (3 submission, 2 TKO).
