Glover Teixeira earned his fourth straight victory in the UFC with a quick first round submission victory over James Te Huna at UFC 160. Other wins include stoppage victories over Kyle Kingsbury and Fabio Maldonado, along with a dominant decision over Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson. Teixeira has now won incredibly, nineteen straight victories in his career.

Last time out, Ryan Bader broke the record for fastest submission victory in the UFC, stopping Vladimir Matyushenko just 50-seconds into the first round with a guillotine choke. He previously suffered a vicious knockout loss to Lyoto Machida at UFC on FOX 4, which ended a two-fight win streak over Jason Brilz and Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson.

Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza was successful in his highly anticipated UFC debut, putting Chris Camozzi to sleep in the first round at UFC on FX 8. He’s now won four consecutive fights since losing his Strikeforce middleweight title to Luke Rockhold in September of 2011. Other notable wins include stoppage victories over Derek Brunson and Ed Herman in his last two Strikeforce fights.

Yushin Okami has once again placed himself among the UFC middleweight elite with three straight victories in the octagon, since his failed attempt at the UFC title and an upset loss to Tim Boetsch in February of last year. Most recently, Okami earned a hard-fought split decision victory against Hector Lombard at UFC on Fuel TV 8.
