UFC Fight Night 35

January 15th, 2014

Duluth, Georgia

The Arena at Gwinnett Center

—————————————————-

TJ Dillashaw had a four fight win streak snapped at UFC Fight Night 29, following a controversial split decision loss to Raphael Assuncao. After losing to John Dodson in the TUF 14 bantamweight finale, Dillashaw rattled off four consecutive wins against Walel Watson, Vaughan Lee, Issei Tamura, and Hugo Viana.

Mike Easton finds himself in a must win situation on the heels of a two-fight losing streak. He began his UFC career 3-0, with wins over Byron Bloodworth, Jared Papazian, and Ivan Menjivar, but back-to-back losses against Raphael Assuncao and Brad Pickett have likely put him near the chopping block.

Cole Miller got a much needed win at UFC Fight Night 30, with a unanimous decision victory over Andy Ogle. He’s now won two out of his last three fights, including a first round submission win over Bart Palaszewski last April. In between the victories, Miller lost a razor-thin decision to Manny Gamburyan at UFC Fight Night 26.

Sam Sicilia likely saved his spot on the UFC’s bantamweight roster with an impressive first round TKO victory over Godofredo Castro at UFC Fight Night 32. The win snapped a two-fight losing streak, made up of a TKO loss to Rony Jason Bezerra and a decision defeat to Maximo Blanco.
