Austrian heavyweight, Nandor Guelmino becomes the latest Strikeforce transfer to join the UFC roster. In his only fight with the promotion, Guelmino was submitted in the first round by Josh Burnett at Strikeforce: Marquardt vs Saffiedine. The loss snapped a seven-fight winning streak, which included five victories by stoppages.

Legacy Fighting Championships heavyweight champion, Derrick Lewis gets a shot in the big leagues on the heels of a five-fight win streak. The most notable win during the streak was his upset victory over Jared Rosholt, winning by second round knockout at LFC 13.  Most recently, Lewis stopped Ricky Shivers in the third round via TKO earlier this year in March.
