Shawn Jordan had a two-fight win streak snapped at UFC 166, suffering a first round knockout loss to Gabriel Gonzaga. He had previously earned back-to-back knockout wins of his own against Mike Russow and Pat Barry.

Ultimate Fighter 10 alum, Matt Mitrione finds himself in a likely must-win situation, losing three out of his last four fights inside the octagon. Most recently, he was submitted in the first round by Brendan Schaub at UFC 165. His only win since June of 2011, came at UFC on Fuel TV 9, when he stopped Phillip de Fries with a 19-second knockout win.

South Korean standout, Yui Chul Nam makes his UFC debut on the strength of a current four-fight win streak, including two consecutive decisions over Takasuke Kume at Road FC events. Nine of Nam’s seventeen professional victories have come by way of stoppages (8 KO/TKO, 1 Submission).

Kazuki Tokudome suffered his first lost since December of 2011 at UFC 162, losing a unanimous decision to Ultimate Fighter: Smashes winner, Norman Parke. He previously had been on a three-fight win streak, including a decision victory over Cristiano Marcello in his UFC debut.
