George Roop returns to the bantamweight division following two consecutive losses at 145 pounds. Roop’s last victory was in June of 2011, defeating Josh Grispi via third round knockout. He then lost a controversial split decision to Hatsu Hioki followed by a second round TKO loss to Cub Swanson.

Reuben Duran likely needs a win to keep his spot in the UFC roster following a first round knockout loss to Hugo ‘Wolverine’ Viana at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale. It was Duran’s second loss in three fights in the UFC, with his only win being a third round submission victory over Francisco Rivera in June of 2011.
