Urijah Faber took another step closer to getting another shot at the UFC bantamweight title with a dominant performance over Scott Jorgensen, eventually getting the submission stoppage in the fourth round at the Ultimate Fighter 17 finale. It was his second straight submission victory since losing to Renan Barao at UFC 149, also finishing Ivan Menjivar with a rear naked choke in February of this year.

Iuri Alcantara put his name on the short list of possible future title challengers with a devastating knockout victory over Iliarde Santos at UFC on FX 8. He’s now 4-1 in Zuffa promotions, including key victories over Ricardo Lamas, Felipe Arantes, and Michihiro Omigawa. Alcantara’s only loss since October of 2009 was a decision loss to Hacran Dias at UFC  147.
