Las Vegas, Nevada

MGM Grand Garden Arena


Edson Barboza rebounded nicely following the first loss of his career, with a first round submission victory over UFC newcomer, Lucas Martins at UFC on FX 7. He previously was upset in Jamie Varner’s return to the UFC, suffering a stunning first round TKO loss in May of last year.

John Makdessi seems to be finding his rhythm in the UFC, winning back-t0-back unanimous decisions against Sam Stout and Daron Cruickshank. Makdessi made his debut in April of 2011, earning a stunning third round spinning backfist knockout win over Kyle Watson at UFC 129. He then lost consecutive fights to Dennis Hallman and Anthony Njokuani before his most recent victories.
