Tarec Saffiedine will go in the record books as Strikeforce’s last welterweight champion, as he defeated Nate Marquardt with a dominant unanimous decision in the promotion’s final show. He’s currently on a four-fight win streak, also including wins over Tyler Stinson, Scott Smith, and Roger Bowling. Injuries have kept him out of action for nearly a year.

South Korean fighter, Hyun Gyu Lim added another stunning knockout to his resume at UFC 164, stopping Pascal Krauss in the first round with a crushing knee. He’s now 2-0 in the UFC, also earning a knockout win over Marcelo Guimaraes in his promotional debut. Lim is currently on a seven-fight win streak, dating back to February of 2010.

Kiichi Kunimoto gets a shot in the UFC on the heels of a current four-fight win streak, most recently submitting UFC-veteran Edward Faaloloto in the first round with an armbar at Heat 27. He’s 9-1-2 in his last twelve fights, with six of those nine victories coming by stoppages.

Luiz Dutra Jr competed on the second season of the Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2, but was unable to join the cast despite winning his elimination round bout due to an injury. Officially, he enters the UFC on a four-fight win streak, but hasn’t competed since April of last year. Notable wins include decision victories over UFC-veterans Fabricio Camoes and Luis Ramos.
