Court McGee snapped a tw0-fight losing streak with a dominant unanimous decision victory over Josh Neer at UFC 157 in his welterweight debut. After beginning his UFC career 3-0, McGee lost back-to-back decisions against Costa Phillippou and Nick Ring.

Rising star, Robert Whittaker improved to 2-0 inside the octagon, defeating fellow Ultimate Fighter winner Colton Smith via third round TKO at UFC 160. Whittaker defeated Brad Scott in his UFC debut to become the first winner of TUF: Smashes, which pitted Australian fighters against UK fighters.

It was his second win in the UFC, also defeating Jorge Lopez via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 25. Edwards has also lost decisions against Clay Harvison and John Maguire during his tenure in the UFC.
