John Lineker took another step towards title contention at UFC 163 with a second round TKO victory over Jose Maria Tome. He’s now won three-straight fights in the UFC since dropping his promotional debut against Louis Gaudinot in May of last year. Other UFC victories for Lineker include a decision victory over Yasuhiro Urushitani and Azamat Gashimov via TKO.

UK flyweight, Phil Harris got his first win the UFC at UFC on Fuel TV 7 with a dominant unanimous decision victory over Ulysses Gomez. The win was his sixth in seven fights, with his only loss since November of 2007 being a second round submission defeat to Darren Uyenoyama in his UFC debut.

Anthony Njokuani has traded wins and losses since his UFC debut in March of 2011, going 3-3 in that time span. Most recently, he stopped Roger Bowling in the second round by knockout at UFC on FOX 7.

Injuries have plagued Paul Taylor in the twilight of his career, keeping him out of action since February of 2011. He last competed at UFC 126, defeating Gabe Ruediger with a second round knockout. The win snapped a two-fight losing streak, back-to-back decision losses to John Hathaway and Sam Stout.
