UK fighter, Tom Watson earned his first win inside the octagon with a second round TKO victory over Stanislav Nedkov at UFC on Fuel TV 7. He previously came up short in his promotional debut, losing a split decision to Brad Tavares in September of last year. 

Former middleweight title contender, Thales Leites returns to the UFC after nearly a four-year absence from the promotion. He was released in August of 2009 and has since amassed a 6-1 record in the regional circuit, including a current three-fight win streak. Most recently, Leites defeated Matt Horwich by second round submission at a Amazon Forest Combat event in Brazil.
