John Makdessi seems to be finding his rhythm in the UFC, winning back-t0-back unanimous decisions against Sam Stout and Daron Cruickshank. Makdessi made his debut in April of 2011, earning a stunning third round spinning backfist knockout win over Kyle Watson at UFC 129. He then lost consecutive fights to Dennis Hallman and Anthony Njokuani before his most recent victories.

Renee Forte likely saved his spot on the UFC roster with a unanimous decision win over Terry Etim at UFC on Fuel TV 7 in his second appearance with the promotion. In his UFC debut, Forte was submitted in the third round by TUF: Brazil 1 runner-up, Sergio Moraes.
