At UFC on FX 7, Iuri Alcantara had what looked to be a TKO stoppage victory over Pedro Nobre, overturned to a no contest by referee Dan Miragliotta after he ruled some of the shots were to the back of the head. Replay showed the strikes were clean, but the decision stood. Alcantara began his UFC career 2-0, with wins over Felipe Arantas and Michihiro Omigawa before losing a decision to Hacran Dias at UFC 147.

Marcos Vinicius had a four-fight win streak come to and end at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale, after suffering a second round knockout loss to Johnny Bedford. In his UFC debut, Vinicius earned a come from behind, third round TKO victory over Wagner Campos at UFC 147.

Highly-touted Brazilian prospect, Hacran Dias was successful in his UFC debut with a unanimous decision over Iuri Alcantara at UFC 147. The win was his ninth in a row, with six of those victories coming by way of stoppages (4 subs, 2 TKOs).

Manny Gamburyan ended a three-fight losing streak with a unanimous decision victory over Michihiro Omigawa at UFC on Fox 4. In September of 2010, Gamburyan fought against Jose Aldo for the WEC featherweight title but was knocked out in the second round. After the UFC/WEC merger, he lost his first two UFC bouts by decision to Tyson Griffin and Diego Nunes.
