Following wins over Josh Koscheck, Jacob Volkmann, and Mike Swick, Paulo Thiago was considered one of the top prospects in the UFC’s welterweight division. Things have changed over the last couple years, losing four out his last five fights, and now likely fighting for his UFC roster spot. Most recently, Thiago lost a unanimous decision to Dong Hyun Kim at UFC on Fuel TV 6.

Lance Benoist was successful in his UFC debut, earning a unanimous decision victory over Matt Riddle at UFC Fight Night 25. He has since lost back-to-back contests against Seth Baczynski and Sean Pierson by decisions.
