—————————————

Once considered one the brightest prospects in the 155-pound division, Evan Dunham now finds himself in a must-win situation losing three of his last four fights inside the UFC. His only win since January of 2012, was a closely-contested split decision victory over Gleison Tibau in February of last year. Dunham’s latest fight was a second round submission loss to Donald Cerrone at UFC 167.

Grappling ace, Mark Bocek had a two-fight win streak come to an end at UFC 154, after losing a one-sided unanimous decision to up-and-coming superstar Rafael dos Anjos. Previous to the Dos Anjos loss, Bocek earned two dominant decision victories of his own over Nik Lentz and John Alessio.

Sam Stout returned to the win column at UFC on FOX 9, dominating Cody McKenzie from start to finish en route to a clear-cut unanimous decision win over Cody McKenzie. He looks to get back-to-back wins for the first time since June of 2011.

KJ Noons likely saved his UFC roster spot and his mixed martial arts career with a unanimous decision win over George Sotiropoulos at UFC 166. The win ended a three-fight losing streak, including a decision loss to Donald Cerrone in his UFC debut last May.

He began his career a perfect 16-0 in the Brazilian regional circuit, which included a unanimous decision victory over Leandro Silva at a Shooto Brazil event in June of last year.

At UFC 160, Stephen Thompson showed of his exciting striking game and a much improved takedown defense en route to an easy unanimous decision victory over Nah-Shon Burrell. In his previous fight, Matt Brown exposed Thompson’s weaknesses on the ground, handing him his first professional loss.

Last time out, Chris Clements was submitted in the third round by Matt Riddle at UFC 149, but the result was later overturned to a no contest after Riddle tested positive for marijuana. So, Clements five-fight win streak stays intact, which includes knockout victories over UFC veterans Jonathan Goulet and Rich Clementi. Also included is a split decision win over Keith Wisniewski in his UFC debut.
