George Roop added another huge victory to his resume at UFC 160, stopping former WEC bantamweight champion Brian Bowles in the second round via TKO. He’s now won two straight fights in the octagon, including a unanimous decision win over Reuben Duran in March. Roop’s only losses since January of 2011 were a TKO loss to Cub Swanson and a controversial split decision loss to Hatsu Hioki at UFC 137.

Francisco Rivera returned from his suspension in solid form, earning a second round TKO victory over Edwin Figueroa at UFC 156. The win is technically his second victory in a row, after his win over Roland Delorme was overturned following a positive drug test in the post-fight testing.
