A likely title shot is on the line for John Lineker, winner of his last four fights inside the octagon. Most recently, he stopped Phil Harris in the first round by knockout at UFC Fight Night 30. Other UFC wins include knockout victories over Azamat Gashimov and Jose Maria Tome, and a decision victory over Yasuhiro Urushitani.

Ali Bagautinov earned his second straight win in the UFC, a unanimous decision victory over Tim Elliott at UFC 167. He’s now won ten consecutive fights in his MMA career, including a first round knockout win over Marcos Vinicius in his UFC debut.

15-1 Russian lightweight prospect, Rashid Magomedov, makes his UFC debut on the heels of a current eight-fight win streak dating back to July of 2010. Key victories during the streak were decision wins over current UFC roster member, Igor Araujo and Yasubey Enomoto.

Minnesota native, Tony Martin remains undefeated at 7-0 in his young mixed martial arts career, with five of those victories coming by submission stoppages. His most notable win came in January, earning a majority decision victory over Ultimate Fighter season eight runner-up, Phillipe Nover at a Dakota FC event.
