Charles Oliveira held his own against former UFC lightweight champion Frank Edgar at UFC 162, but ultimately lost a unanimous decision. He’s now lost two straight in the octagon, including a first round knockout loss to Cub Swanson in September of last year. Oliveira’s last victory was a submission victory over Jonathan Brookins at the Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale.

Jeremy Larsen gets a rare third opportunity to get a UFC victory, following a 0-2 start with the promotion following his time on the fifteenth season of the Ultimate Fighter. He made his UFC debut in the show’s finale, but lost to Joe Proctor by first round TKO. Last time out, Larsen lost to Lucas Martins by third round knockout at UFC on FX 8.
