Kyoji Horiguchi made a good first impression in his UFC debut, stopping Dustin Pague in the second round via TKO at UFC 166. He’s now won six-straight fights dating back to March of 2010. Horiguchi competed at bantamweight in his UFC debut, but will make the drop to the flyweight division for his sophomore appearance.
Chris Cariaso returned to the win column with a second round TKO victory over Iliarde Santos at UFC Fight Night 29 last October. It was his first stoppage win in eight appearances in the UFC, the rest of his victories have come by decision. Cariaso previously lost back-to-back fights against John Moraga and Jussier da Silva.
