Alpha Male product, Chris Holdsworth earned a spot in this year’s Ultimate Fighter men’s 135-pound tournament finale, with two first round submission victories over Chris Beal and Michael Wooten. Officially, he’s 4-0 in his young mixed martial arts career, with all four wins coming by submission.

UK fighter, Davey Grant got the other spot in the tourney finale with a second round submission win over Louis Fisette, and then a bye in the semifinals after Anthony Guttierez failed to make weight. He’s 8-1 on his official record, including a first round submission win over fellow prospect James Pennington at a Shock n Awe event in July of last year.

Joshua Sampo signed with the UFC on the heels of a current four-fight win streak, which includes a fifth round submission victory over Alexis Vila to win the inaugural Championship Fighting Alliance flyweight title. Last month, he defended the title with a unanimous decision win over Sam Thao at CFA 9.

Ryan Benoit makes his UFC debut with a professional record of 7-2, since his debut in March of 2009. Most recently, Benoit stopped Cody Fuller in the first round at Legacy Fighting Championships 24 last month. He’s won five of his last six bouts, with the loss being a unanimous decision defeat against current MFC bantamweight champion, Anthony Birchak at MFC 37.
