UFC 166

October 19th, 2013

Houston, Texas

Toyota Center

————————————————————–

Gabriel Gonzaga earned his fourth victory in five fights at UFC 162, defeating Dave Herman by knockout in just 17-seconds in the opening frame. He previously was knocked out by rising star, Travis Browne at the Ultimate Fighter 17 finale, snapping a three-fight win streak.

Shawn Jordan got his second straight TKO finish in the octagon at UFC 161, stopping Pat Barry in under a minute in the first round. The former Strikeforce fighter is now 3-1 in the UFC, including wins over Oli Thompson and Mike Russow.

KJ Noons is in a must win situation, losing five of his last six fights dating back to October of 2010. Noons made his UFC debut at UFC 160, losing a hard fought unanimous decision to top contender, Donald Cerrone. Other losses during this streak were against some of the top lightweights in the world, including Nick Diaz, Jorge Masvidal, and Josh Thomson.

Not long ago, George Sotiropoulos was on the short list of title contenders in the UFC’s 155-pound division, but after three straight losses, he too finds himself in a must win scenario. Sotiropoulos put himself in title talk with seven-straight wins to begin his UFC career following his stint on sixth season of the Ultimate Fighter, but now has lost three consecutive fights to Dennis Siver, Rafael dos Anjos, and Ross Pearson.
