Original Ultimate Fighter cast member and fan favorite, Chris Leben finds himself at the crossroads of his career. Losing three out his last four fights, he likely will find his way out of the UFC with another loss. Leben’s last victory was a 27-second knockout of Wanderlei Silva at UFC 132. Losses include TKO defeats to Brian Stann and Mark Munoz, and most recently a decision loss to Derek Brunson.

Andrew Craig suffered the first lost of his career at UFC on FX 7, dropping a unanimous decision to Ronny Markes. He began his UFC career with two straight victories over Kyle Noke and Rafael Natal.

Seth Baczynski had a six-fight win streak come to an end, when he lost a unanimous decision to criminally underrated Mike Pierce at UFC on FX 6. Baczynski won his first four fights in his return to the UFC, including stoppage victories over Clay Harivson, Matt Brown, and Simeon Thoresen.

Strikeforce transfer, Brian Melancon won his third bout in four fights with a unanimous decision victory over Felipe Portela at Strikeforce Challengers 19. His only loss since May of 2010 was a controversial split decision loss to Isaac Vallie-Flagg at Strikeforce: Overeem vs Werdum.
