Luke Rockhold didn’t have the UFC debut he was hoping for, ending up on the wrong side of a first round highlight reel knockout by Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX 8. The loss snapped a nine fight win streak for the former Strikeforce middleweight champion, including wins over Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza, Keith Jardine, and Tim Kennedy.

After a four-fight win streak started his middleweight career, Tim Boetsch found himself on the cusp of title contention. But now, back-to-back losses have him reeling to stay among the elite in the division. Most recently, Boetsch was dominated from start to finish by Mark Munoz, en route to a unanimous decision loss at UFC 162.
