Luke Rockhold didn’t have the UFC debut he was hoping for, ending up on the wrong side of a first round highlight reel knockout by Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX 8. The loss snapped a nine fight win streak for the former Strikeforce middleweight champion, including wins over Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza, Keith Jardine, and Tim Kennedy.
Costa Philippou’s surprising win streak through the UFC’s middleweight division ended at five, after losing a unanimous decision to Francis Carmont at UFC 165. During the streak, Philippou earned key victories over Court McGee, Riki Fukuda, and Tim Boetsch.
