Former Strikeforce fighter and TUF alum, Bristol Marunde likely needs a win to keep his spot on the UFC’s middleweight roster, losing back-to-back fights under the Zuffa banner. He had a four-fight win streak snapped at Strikeforce: Tate vs Rousey, when he took a short notice fight against Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza, and was submitted in the third round. More recently, Marunde was stopped by Clint Hester in the third round at the Ultimate Fighter 17 finale.

Viscardi Andrade gets a shot in the UFC after a semifinal run in the Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2. Officially, he’s on a six-fight win streak dating back to October of 2011. Last time out, Andrade earned a 31-second knockout victory over Michel Vaz at a Moema Fight event in Brazil.
