Once considered the top flyweight in the world, Jussier ‘Formiga’ Da Silva is in dire need of a victory after a sub-par performance in his UFC debut, losing by second round TKO to John Dodson at UFC on FX 5. The loss snapped a five-fight win streak, which included a unanimous decision victory over Mamoru Yamaguchi in August of 2011.

Chis Cariaso was submitted by rising contender John Moraga in the third round by guillotine choke at UFC 155, ending a three-fight win streak. After winning back-to-back decisions against Vaughan Lee and Takeya Mizugaki, Cariaso dropped to the 125-pound division and won a decision over Josh Ferguson.
