Bryan Caraway rebounded from a controversial split decision loss to Takeya Mizugaki at UFC on Fuel TV 8, stopping Johnny Bedford in the third round with a guillotine choke at UFC 159.

He rebounded from the Barboza loss with a third round knockout victory over Jeremy Larsen at UFC on FX 8. Martins then dropped two weight classes to the bantamweight division, and ran through Ramiro Hernandez, earning the submission win in just a little over a minute into the opening round at UFC Fight Night 28.

Alexis Davis extended her win streak to four at UFC Fight Night 31, with a dominant unanimous decision victory over former title challenger, Liz Carmouche. Other notable wins during the streak, include submission wins over Hitomi Akano and Shanya Baszler, and a decision win over Rosi Sexton in her UFC debut.

Jessica Eye proved an extra ten-pounds won’t be a problem for her after earning a split decision victory over perennial top contender, Sarah Kaufman in her UFC debut. She’s now won eight-straight fights in her career, including key wins over Angela Magana, Zoila Frausto Gurgel, and Carina Damm.
