Grappling ace, Mark Bocek had a two-fight win streak come to an end at UFC 154, after losing a one-sided unanimous decision to up-and-coming superstar Rafael dos Anjos. Previous to the Dos Anjos loss, Bocek earned two dominant decision victories of his own over Nik Lentz and John Alessio.

Michel Prazeres suffered the first loss of his career after taking a short notice fight against Paulo Thiago, losing a hard fought decision at UFC on FX 8. He began his career a perfect 16-0 in the Brazilian regional circuit, which included a unanimous decision victory over Leandro Silva at a Shooto Brazil event in June of last year.

At UFC 160, Stephen Thompson showed of his exciting striking game and a much improved takedown defense en route to an easy unanimous decision victory over Nah-Shon Burrell. In his previous fight, Matt Brown exposed Thompson’s weaknesses on the ground, handing him his first professional loss.

Last time out, Chris Clements was submitted in the third round by Matt Riddle at UFC 149, but the result was later overturned to a no contest after Riddle tested positive for marijuana. So, Clements five-fight win streak stays intact, which includes knockout victories over UFC veterans Jonathan Goulet and Rich Clementi. Also included is a split decision win over Keith Wisniewski in his UFC debut.
