Shane del Rosario was once considered one of the top heavyweight prospects in MMA, but back-to-back losses in the UFC to Stipe Miocic and Pat Barry has somewhat derailed his hype train. He began his career a perfect 11-0, including three wins under the Strikeforce banner, but now likely needs a win to keep his spot on the UFC roster.

Another top prospect, Guto Inocente will make his long anticipated UFC debut in the heavyweight division. When he makes his debut, he will have been out of action for 19-months, last time out earning a unanimous decision victory over Virgil Zwicker at Strikeforce: Barnett vs Cormier.

Siyar Bahadurzada saw a seven-fight win streak come to an end at UFC on Fuel TV 8, dropping a unanimous decision to Dong Hyun Kim. He previously made his UFC debut in April of last year, making a quick first impression with a 42-second knockout victory over Paulo Thiago.

John Howard returned to UFC for the first time since June of 2011 at UFC Fight Night 26, earning an upset split decision victory over TUF 18 runner-up, Uriah Hall. Howard was released from the UFC after a three consecutive losses in the octagon, followed a four-fight winning streak to begin his UFC career.

Takanori Gomi put together back-to-back wins for the first time since October of 2009 with a Split Decision victory over Mac Danzig at UFC on Fuel TV 6. Gomi also defeated Eiji Mitsuoka via second round TKO in the UFC’s return to Japan in February earlier this year. Before the Mitsuoka win, Gomi was on the verge of getting released, losing three out of his first four fights after signing with the UFC in March of 2010.

Diego Sanchez returns to the lightweight division after a 2-2 stint as a welterweight. The last time Sanchez was a 155-pounder, he fought BJ Penn for UFC gold, losing in the fifth round by TKO to the former champion. As a welterweight, Sanchez won decisions against Paulo Thiago and Martin Kampmann, but lost to John Hathaway and Jake Ellenberger, also by decision.

Dong Hyun Kim rebounded nicely from a rib injury suffered in the early seconds of the first round against Demian Mia, with a dominant unanimous decision victory against Paulo Thiago at UFC on Fuel TV 6. Kim has amassed an impressive record of 7-2 in one of the UFC’s deepest divsions, also including wins over TJ Grant, Amir Sadollah, and Nate Diaz.

Siyar Bahadurzada made quite the first impression in his UFC debut, dispatching of the usually very resilient Paulo Thiago in just 42-seconds by knockout. The win was his seventh in a row, which also includes a first round TKO victory over UFC-veteran John Alessio at a United Glory event.
