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.
Brazilian bantamweight, Iliarde Santos enters the UFC on a six-fight win streak, dating back to January of last year. During the streak, four wins have come by stoppages (3 TKO, 1 sub) and two by decision. Santos’ most notable win came at Jungle Fight 38, defeating Leandro Higo by unanimous decision.
