Derek Brunson earned a gritty unanimous decision victory over Chris Leben in his UFC debut at UFC 155. The win snapped a two-fight losing streak, which included a controversial split decision loss to former UFC fighter Kendall Grove and a knockout loss to Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza.

Yoel Romero made his highly anticipated Strikeforce debut in September of 2011, but spent the entire time taunting Rafael Cavalcante before getting knocked out in second round. He left a much better impression in his UFC debut, knocking out Clifford Starks in the first round with a flying knee at UFC on FOX 7.

Magnus Cedenblad had a seven-fight win streak ended in his UFC debut, suffering a second round submission loss to Francis Carmont at UFC on Fuel TV 2 last April. During his win streak, Cedenblad won four fights by knockout, two by submission, and one by decision in the Swedish regional MMA circuit. Injuries have kept him out of action for over a year.

Jared Hamman is in dire need of a win, winning just one in his last four fights. Most recently, he was stopped in the second round via TKO by Michael Kuiper at UFC 150. Hamman’s last victory came in August of 2011, earning a upset win over CB Dollaway with a second round TKO.
