Raphael Assuncao may be a win or two away from a title shot following a razor-thin, somewhat controversial split decision win over TJ Dillashaw at UFC Fight Night 29. He’s now a perfect 5-0 as a bantamweight, including other key wins over Johnny Eduardo and Mike Easton.

Resurrection Fighting Alliance’s bantamweight champion, Pedro Munhoz, got the call from the UFC following his 41-second submission win over Billy Daniels at RFA 12. The win extended his record to a perfect 10-0 mark, including a split decision victory last August over UFC veteran, Jeff Curran.
