Former number one contender, Thiago Alves return after a two-year layoff from the cage. He last competed at UFC on FX 2, when he was submitted by Martin Kampmann in the third round, in a fight in which he was dominating up until the finish. It was Alves’ second loss in three fights, only securing a submission victory over Papy Abedi at UFC 138.

Seth Baczynski returned back to the win column at UFC Fight Night 31, after scoring a dominant unanimous decision win over Neil Magny. He had previously lost back-t0-back fights, including a decision loss to Mike Pierce and a first round knockout defeat to Brian Melancon.

Josh Samman was victorious in his UFC debut, defeating Kevin Casey in the second round by TKO at the Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale. He’s now won seven out of his last eight bouts, with all eight wins coming by way of stoppages. Samman returns from a yearlong absence from the sport, due to the untimely death of his girlfriend.

After a lackluster performance in his UFC debut, Caio Magalhaes has now won two consecutive fights in the octagon. He made his debut in June of 2012, losing a decision to Buddy Roberts, but has since won back-to-back bouts over Karlos Vemola and Nick Ring.

Seth Baczynski looks to avoid the UFC’s cut list, following back-to-back losses in the octagon. He was originally released from the UFC in June of 2010, but was brought back after two wins in the regional circuit. Baczynski won four-straight fights upon his return, including wins over Matt Brown, Lance Benoist, and Simeon Thoresen. He has since lost a decision to Mike Pierce and been knocked out in the first round by Brian Melancon at UFC 162.

Ultimate Fighter 16 semi-finalist, Neil Magny suffered his first loss in the UFC, after getting submitted early in the first round by jiu-jitsu ace Sergio Moraes at UFC 163. Magny made his promotional debut in February at UFC 157, earning a unanimous decision over fellow TUF castmate Jon Manley.

Original Ultimate Fighter cast member and fan favorite, Chris Leben finds himself at the crossroads of his career. Losing three out his last four fights, he likely will find his way out of the UFC with another loss. Leben’s last victory was a 27-second knockout of Wanderlei Silva at UFC 132. Losses include TKO defeats to Brian Stann and Mark Munoz, and most recently a decision loss to Derek Brunson.

Andrew Craig suffered the first lost of his career at UFC on FX 7, dropping a unanimous decision to Ronny Markes. He began his UFC career with two straight victories over Kyle Noke and Rafael Natal.

Seth Baczynski had a six-fight win streak come to an end, when he lost a unanimous decision to criminally underrated Mike Pierce at UFC on FX 6. Baczynski won his first four fights in his return to the UFC, including stoppage victories over Clay Harivson, Matt Brown, and Simeon Thoresen.

Strikeforce transfer, Brian Melancon won his third bout in four fights with a unanimous decision victory over Felipe Portela at Strikeforce Challengers 19. His only loss since May of 2010 was a controversial split decision loss to Isaac Vallie-Flagg at Strikeforce: Overeem vs Werdum.

Seth Baczynski’s tear throw the UFC welterweight division continued at UFC 152, knocking out Simeon Thoresen in the first round. The win was his sixth in a row, since being originally released from the UFC following his unanimous decision loss to Brad Tavares at The Ultimate Fighter Season 11 Finale in June of 2010.

Mike Pierce inches closer to adding his name to the elite in the UFC welterweight division, winning back-to-back fights against Carlos Eduardo Rocha and Aaron Simpson. His last defeat was a closely-contested split decision loss to perennial contender Josh Koscheck at UFC 143.
