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.

The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale was originally supposed to be headlined by a flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and John Moraga, but Johnson suffered a broken hand in training and has been pulled from the card. Top bantamweight contenders, Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen will now meet in the main event.

Urijah Faber looked extraordinary at UFC 157, submitting Ivan Menjivar in the first round with a standing rear naked choke. He’s now 3-2 in his tenure with the UFC, losing to Dominick Cruz and Renan Barao in title shot opportunities. Other wins for Faber in the UFC include a decision win against Eddie Wineland and a submission victory over Brian Bowles.

Scott Jorgensen snapped a two-fight losing streak with a first round submission victory over John Albert at UFC on FOX 5. He previously lost back-to-back contests against Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland. In December of 2010, Scott Jorgensen fought Domincick Cruz for the WEC bantamweight title, but came up short losing a unanimous decision.
