Dustin Poirier looks to rebound from his second loss in three fights, following a unanimous decision loss to Cub Swanson at UFC on Fuel TV 7. In May of last year, Poirier suffered his first loss in the UFC after getting submitted by Chang Sung Jung in the fourth round in a fight that many believed was the best fight of the 2012. Prior to the Swanson loss, he tapped Jonathan Brookins in the first round with a brabo choke at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.

At UFC on FOX 6, Erik Koch had a four-fight win streak come to an end after suffering a second round TKO loss to Ricardo Lamas. During the streak, Koch earned stoppages victories against Bendy Casimir, Francisco Rivera, and Raphael Assuncao, and a decision win over Jonathan Brookins.
