Amir Sadollah needs a win to avoid his first back-to-back losing streak in his career. He’s lost two of his last three fights, decision losses to Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig and Dan Hardy. Sadollah’s only win since March of 2011 was a controversial split decision victory over Jorge Lopez at UFC on Fuel TV 3.

Stephen Thompson showed off his flashy striking ability with a highlight reel head kick knockout of Dan Stittgen at UFC 143, earning him the “Knockout of the Night” bonus in his UFC debut. In his return to the octagon, long time MMA veteran Matt Brown exposed Thompson’s shortcomings in his ground game, defeating Thompson with a clear-cut unanimous decision.
