Alessio Sakara returns for the first time since November of last year, when he lost to Patrick Cote by disqualification for elbows to the back of the head. The loss was his third straight in the UFC and one more may send Sakara packing. Other losses during the streak include a decision loss to Chris Weidman and a knockout loss to Brian Stann at UFC on Fuel TV 2.
Tom Watson is in need of a win as well, following a 1-2 start to his UFC career. Last time out, Watson was dominated from start to finish by former title challenger, Thales Leites at UFC 163. His only win with the promotion was a second round TKO stoppage victory over Stanislav Nedkov at UFC on Fuel TV 7.
