Joseph Benavidez once again returned to the win column with a hard-fought unanimous decision victory over Ian McCall at UFC 156. He’s now won five of his last six fights, only losing to Demetrious Johnson by split decision in September of last year.

Darren Uyenoyama impressed in his UFC debut, back in November of 2011, dominating Norifumi ‘Kid’ Yamamoto to earn a unanimous decision victory at UFC on FOX 1. He did the same in his sophomore appearance, submitting Phil Harris in the second round by rear naked choke, last October.

Francisco Rivera returned from his suspension in solid form, earning a second round TKO victory over Edwin Figueroa at UFC 156. The win is technically his second victory in a row, after his win over Roland Delorme was overturned following a positive drug test in the post-fight testing.

Hugo ‘Wolverine’ Viana looked great in his bantamweight debut, scoring a first round knockout victory over Reuben Duran at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale. He debuted with the UFC as a featherweight, defeating John Teixeira de Conceicao by split decision.
