Gleison Tibau earned his second straight victory in the octagon with a hard-fought unanimous decision victory over Jamie Varner at UFC 164. He’s 6-2 in his last eight fights, including key wins over Rafael dos Anjos, Francisco Trinaldo, and John Cholish.
Michael Johnson looked the best he ever has in nine fights inside the octagon at UFC Fight Night 26, dominating Joe Lauzon for three rounds en route to a unanimous decision victory. That performance very well could have saved his roster spot in the UFC, previously losing back-to-back fights against Myles Jury and Reza Madadi.
