Gray Maynard suffered only the second loss of his career at UFC 160, a first round TKO defeat to rising star TJ Grant. He’s 1-1 in the octagon, since his missed opportunity to become the UFC’s lightweight champion, losing to Frank Edgar via fourth round knockout at UFC 136. Maynard’s last victory was uneventful split decision victory over Clay Guida in June of last year.
Nate Diaz has now lost two straight, dropping a unanimous decision to then-champ Benson Henderson last December and most recently a second round TKO loss to Josh Thomson at UFC on FOX 7. Diaz earned a shot at the UFC lightweight title after three straight dominant victories over Takanori Gomi, Donald Cerrone, and Jim Miller.
