Renan Barao successfully defended his interim bantamweight title for the first time, with a fourth round submission victory over Michael McDonald at UFC on Fuel TV 7. The win was his unheard of, 30th consecutive victory in his mixed martial arts career, including his seventh in a row under the Zuffa banner. Other notable wins include decision wins over Scott Jorgensen and Urijah Faber, along with a submission win over Brad Pickett.

Former WEC bantamweight champion, Eddie Wineland will get a shot at a world title for the first time since March of 2007.  At UFC on FX 3, Wineland earned a stunning second round knockout over perennial contender, Scott Jorgensen. He most recently followed that victory with a dominant decision win over Brad Pickett at UFC 155.
