UFC 157

February 23rd, 2013

Anaheim, California

Honda Center

——————————————————————–-

Strikeforce transfer, Nah-Shon Burrell looks to rebound from his first loss since October of 2010, winning six-straight fights until suffering a first round TKO loss to Chris Spang at Strikeforce: Barnett vs Cormier. He previously was a perfect 3-0 in Strikeforce, holding wins over Joe Ray, Lukasz Les, and James Terry.

Highly-touted prospect, Yuri Villefort fell short in his Strikeforce debut, losing a split decision to Quinn Mulhern in May of last year. The loss snapped a six-fight win streak to begin his career, with five of six victories coming by stoppages (2 TKO, 3 Submission).
