Season six’s tournament winner, Rick Hawn came up short on claiming the Bellator lightweight title in January, suffering a second round submission loss to Michael Chandler at Bellator 85. He later returned to the welterweight division in April and defeated UFC-veteran Karo Parisyan in the second round by knockout.

Matt Riddle fights outside the UFC for the first time of his career, following his release from promotion, after testing positive for marijuana twice in three fights. He would be on a current four-fight win streak if it wasn’t for his blunders, turning wins over Chris Clements and Che Mills to no contests.

Scanlon made one appearance in the UFC, dropping a unanimous decision to Pascal Krauss in November of 2010. Since his release, he’s gone 2-1, most recently defeating Alex Junius by first round submission at a PEC event in Brazil.

Strikeforce veteran, Herman Terrado carries a current seven-fight win streak with him into his Bellator debut, all seven victories coming by way of stoppages.

Matt Riddle earned his second win in a row, with a unanimous decision victory over John Maguire at UFC 154. It could have been his third consecutive victory but his win over Chris Clements last July was overturned to a no contest following a positive test for marijuana following the bout.

At UFC on Fuel TV 5, Che Mills got his second win in the UFC after Duane Ludwig suffered a knee injury in the first round on a take down, giving Mills the TKO victory. He won his UFC debut with a highlight reel TKO stoppage over Chris Cope in November of last year, but followed it with a second round TKO loss to Rory MacDonald at UFC 145.

Matt Riddle’s victory over Chris Clements at UFC 149 was overturned last month after Riddle tested positive for marijuana in the post-fight drug screen. The win would have been his second in a row, following a split decision victory over Henry Martinez in February of this year.

John Maguire was successful in his first two appearances in the UFC, defeating Justin Edwards by unanimous decision in his debut and submitting DaMarques Johnson with an armbar at UFC on Fuel TV 2. His seven-fight win streak was snapped in his most recent fight, dropping a unanimous decision to John Hathaway at UFC of Fuel TV 5.
