Stephen Thompson showed off his flashy striking ability with a highlight reel head kick knockout of Dan Stittgen at UFC 143, earning him the “Knockout of the Night” bonus in his UFC debut. In his return to the octagon, long time MMA veteran Matt Brown exposed Thompson’s shortcomings in his ground game, defeating Thompson with a clear-cut unanimous decision.

Strikeforce transfer, Nah-Shon Burrell returned to his winning ways with a unanimous decision victory over Yuri Villefort in a epic back-and-forth battle at UFC 157. In Burrell’s final fight with Strikeforce, he suffered a first round TKO defeat to Chris Spang, which snapped a six-fight win streak.
