Despite losing his last four fights inside the UFC, Leonard Garcia’s “kill or be killed” style of fighting has earned him another chance to earn his first victory since December of 2010. Garcia has made a career of winning split decisions that he didn’t deserve to win, but it was the other way around at UFC 155, when up-and-comer Max Holloway got the nod in a fight many believe Garcia deserved to win.

Cody McKenzie dropped to the featherweight after a 2-2 stint in the UFC 155-pound division. In his 145-pound debut, he met on the division’s elite fighters in Chad Mendes and was knocked out by a body punch just 31 seconds into the first round. Twelve of McKenzie’s thirteen career victories have come by way of his modified guillotine choke.
