Jussier da Silva suffered his second loss in three fights during his tenure with the UFC, after a first round knockout loss to Joseph Benavidez at UFC Fight Night 28. The former #1 world ranked flyweight made his UFC debut in October of 2012, losing by knockout to John Dodson, but followed it up with a unanimous decision win over Chris Cariaso in his sophomore appearance.

Former WEC title challenger, Scott Jorgensen, is in desperate need of a win, losing four out of his last five fights in the UFC. Following a 3-3 record as a bantamweight, he dropped to the UFC’s flyweight division, but lost to former Bellator bantamweight champion, Zach Makovsky by unanimous decision.

Thiago Perpetuo was one of the latest victims of the Russian invasion in mixed martial arts, falling to Omari Akhmedov by first round knockout at UFC Fight Night 32. After appearing on the first season of the Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, Perpetuo made his official UFC debut at UFC 147, upsetting Leonardo Mafra Texiera with a third round TKO victory.

Kenny Robertson lost a controversial majority decision to Sean Pierson at 161. He previously earned his first victory in the octagon with a first round submission victory over Brock Jardine last February. Robertson is now 1-3 during his time in the UFC, including losses to Mike Pierce and Aaron Simpson.
