16-year mixed martial arts veteran, Yves Edwards may need a win in order to keep his spot on the UFC’s lightweight roster, after losing three of his last four fights. Most recently, Edwards dropped a split decision to Daron Cruickshank at UFC on FOX 8. It was his second straight loss in the octagon, previously losing another split decision to Isaac Vallie-Flagg.

Yancy Medeiros dislocated his thumb on a takedown attempt from Rustam Khabilov at UFC 159, prompting a first round TKO loss after the ringside physician deemed him unable to continue. The loss to Khabilov in his UFC debut was Medeiros’ first professional loss after starting his career a perfect 9-0, including Strikeforce victories over Raul Castillo and Gareth Joseph.
