Kelvin Gastelum surprised the MMA community with a hard fought split decision victory over heavy favorite, Uriah Hall in the Ultimate Fighter 17 finale. He now drops to the welterweight division for his sophomore appearance in the UFC. Gastelum is a perfect 6-0 since starting his MMA career in December of 2010, winning five of six by stoppages (3 TKO, 2 Submission).

Brian Melancon exploded on to the UFC scene with a buzzer beater first round knockout victory over Seth Baczynski at UFC 162. Ring rust was clearly not an issue, since his previous fight was nearly two years before that, when he earned a unanimous decision win over Felipe Portela at Strikeforce Challengers 19.
