TJ Dillashaw took another step forward towards adding his name among the elite fighters atop the UFC bantamweight division with an impressive first round knockout victory over Hugo Viana at UFC on FOX 7. He’s now won four straight fights since losing to John Dodson in the Ultimate Fighter 14 bantamweight finale.

Raphael Assuncao has quietly won four consecutive fights in the UFC, dating back to August of 2011. After suffering a first round knockout loss to Erik Koch at UFC 128, Assuncao dropped to the 135-pound division where he’s gone 4-0, including wins over Johnny Eduardo, Mike Easton, and Vaughan Lee.

Keith Wisniewski is in dire need of a win, following a 0-2 start to his UFC career. He made his UFC debut in October of 2011, suffering a second round TKO loss to Josh Neer at UFC Live 6. More recently, Wisniewski dropped a split decision to Chris Clements at UFC 145 in his sophomore appearance in the octagon.

Marcelo Guimaraes suffered his first career loss at UFC on Fuel TV 8 after getting knocked out in the second round by UFC newcomer, Hyun Gyu Lim. Guimaraes began his career 8-0-1, including victories over Ildemar Alcantara and Daniel Stittgen in his UFC debut.
