Newark, New Jersey

Steven Siler has been one of the more surprising success stories from the 14th season of the Ultimate Fighter, winning his first three fights in the octagon, including a dominant unanimous decision victory over Cole Miller at UFC on FX 2. His win streak came to an end at UFC 154, losing a unanimous decision to Darren Elkins.

Filling in as a late replacement for injured Gilbert Melendez, Kurt Holobaugh impressed a lot of people in his unanimous decision loss to Pat Healy at Strikeforce: Marquardt vs Saffiedine. The loss to Healy, snapped a nine-fight win streak to begin his career, which included eight victories by stoppages (6 submission, 2 TKO).
