It wasn’t his prettiest victory in the octagon, but Rory MacDonald earned his fifth straight victory at UFC on FOX 8 with a unanimous decision win over Jake Ellenberger. He’s clearly in the mix for title shot contention, with other notable victories over BJ Penn, Nate Diaz, and Mike Pyle, but it remains a mystery if he will challenge his friend and teammate Georges St. Pierre if offered.

Robbie Lawler continues to impress in his return to the UFC, earning his second straight knockout victory, stopping Bobby Voelker early in second round with a head kick at UFC on FOX 8. Lawler returned at UFC at UFC 157, upsetting former title contender Josh Koscheck in the first round via TKO.
