Frank Edgar hasn’t had a non-title fight since December of 2009, when he submitted Matt Veach at the Ultimate Fighter Season 10 Finale. Edgar has now lost three consecutive fights, including two decision losses to Benson Henderson and most recently a decision loss to featherweight champion, Jose Aldo.

Charles Oliveira had a two-fight win streak snapped at UFC 152, suffering a first round knockout loss to Cub Swanson. He previously earned back-to-back submission wins against Eric Wisely and Jonathan Brookins.

Nine-year MMA veteran, Cub Swanson has had a career resurgence since the WEC/UFC merger. He’s gone 4-1 since in the merger, including a current four-fight win streak. Victories include knockout wins over George Roop, Ross Pearson, and Charles Oliveira, and most recently a hard fought decision win against Dustin Poirier at UFC on Fuel TV 7.

Dennis Siver extended his record to 2-0, since making the drop to the featherweight division with a dominant unanimous decision over Nam Phan at UFC on FOX 5. He debuted at 145-pounds in April, winning another unanimous decision against highly-touted Diego Nunes at UFC on Fuel TV 2.
