Dustin Poirier proved once again that he remains one of the elite fighters in the UFC’s featherweight division with a decisive unanimous decision victory over Erik Koch at UFC 164. He’s traded wins and losses since February of last year, also earning victories over Max Holloway and Jonathan Brookins, both by submission. Losses were a fourth round submission defeat to Chang Sung Jung and a decision loss to Cub Swanson at UFC on Fuel TV 7.

Season 14 winner of the Ultimate Fighter, Diego Brandao extended his win streak to three inside the octagon after a one-sided unanimous decision victory over Daniel Pineda at UFC Fight Night 26. He’s now 4-1 in the UFC, including wins over Dennis Bermudez, Joey Gambino, and Pablo Garza.

Another loss might very well end the career of fan-favorite, Chris Leben, who has lost four out his last five fights, including a current three-fight losing streak. Last time in the cage, Leben didn’t have much to offer Andrew Craig, who dominated the fight despite the ludicrous split decision announcement. The last time Leben got his hand raised in the cage was after a 27-second knockout of Wanderlei Silva back in July of 2011.

Deemed as the “next Anderson Silva” on the last season of the Ultimate Fighter, Uriah Hall now likely needs a victory to keep his spot on the UFC’s middleweight roster following an 0-2 start to his UFC career. Hall made his UFC debut on the show’s live finale, but lost a split decision to Kelvin Gastelum in a shocking upset. He then made his sophomore appearance in the octagon at UFC Fight Night 26, but lost a lack-luster decision to John Howard.

Dustin Poirier looks to rebound from his second loss in three fights, following a unanimous decision loss to Cub Swanson at UFC on Fuel TV 7. In May of last year, Poirier suffered his first loss in the UFC after getting submitted by Chang Sung Jung in the fourth round in a fight that many believed was the best fight of the 2012. Prior to the Swanson loss, he tapped Jonathan Brookins in the first round with a brabo choke at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.

At UFC on FOX 6, Erik Koch had a four-fight win streak come to an end after suffering a second round TKO loss to Ricardo Lamas. During the streak, Koch earned stoppages victories against Bendy Casimir, Francisco Rivera, and Raphael Assuncao, and a decision win over Jonathan Brookins.

Cub Swanson got the biggest win in his career at UFC 152 with a stunning first round knockout over Charles Oliveira, which catapulted his name into title consideration. The win was his third in a row, earning TKO finishes against George Roop and Ross Pearson as well.

Dustin Poirier returned to his usual ways at The Ultimate Fighter 16 finale with a first round submission victory over Jonathan Brookins.  Previously, he suffered his first lost inside the UFC to the “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung by submission in the fourth round, in what was considered the best fight of 2012. The lost to Jung snapped a five-fight win streak.
