It wasn’t pretty, but Thiago Silva earned his second straight victory at UFC Fight Night 29, with a unanimous decision win over Matt Hamill. The win streak comes after a two-year stretch where Silva lost two fights and had two victories overturned due to positive drug tests. He returned from a six month suspension for marijuana in June, and stopped former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Rafael Cavalcante in the first round by knockout.

Since February of 2010, Ovince St Preux has amassed an impressive 11-1 record, including a current 2-0 streak in the UFC. He made his promotional debut at UFC 159, earning a technical decision victory against Gian Villante. Most recently, he knocked out Cody Donovan in stunning fashion last August at UFC Fight Night 26.

Robert McDaniel had a seven-fight win streak end at UFC Fight Night 27, losing a unanimous decision to Brad Tavares. The win streak began in June of 2010, with six of seven fights ending in stoppages, including a third round submission win over Gilbert Smith in his UFC debut.

Ultimate Fighter 17 alum, Tor Troeng earned plenty of new fans in defeat at UFC Fight Night 28, showing incredible heart in a three round war with Rafael Natal but ultimately lost by unanimous decision. The loss snapped a five-fight win streak, which included a first round submission win over Adam Cella in his UFC debut.

Thiago Silva likely saved his spot on the UFC roster with a first round knockout win over Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavalcante at UFC on Fuel TV 10. It was the first fight back from a six-month suspension following a positive test result for marijuana after his win (later overturned to a no contest) over Stanislav Nedkov. Silva was also suspended in 2011 for a year, after testing positive for PED’s following a fight win Brandon Vera.

Matt Hamill returned in September of last year from a yearlong retirement, defeating Roger Hollett by unanimous decision at UFC 152. The win snapped a two-fight losing streak with the win over Hollett, previously losing back-to-back fights against Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and Alexander Gustafsson.

Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavalcante returns following a year long suspension after testing positive to a banned substance following his TKO victory (overturned to a no contest) over Mike Kyle at Strikeforce: Barnett vs Cormier. He’s 4-1 since November of 2009, his only loss being a knockout loss to Dan Henderson.

Thiago Silva is likely out the good graces of the UFC following a second suspension due to a positive test of a banned substance, this time after his third round submission victory over Stanislav Nedkov. So, with two overturned victories, Silva has lost three out his last four fights, including losses to Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans, and Alexander Gustafsson.

Erick Silva looks to rebound from a closely-contested unanimous decision loss to Jon Fitch at UFC 153 in Brazil. Silva has now gone 2-2 in the UFC, but one of his losses, he was disqualified against Carlo Prater for shots to the back of the head in a fight where he was clearly on the way to a stoppage victory. His last victory was a first round submission win over Charlie Brenneman at UFC on FX 3.

Since he debuted in January of 2009, John Hathaway has quietly gone 7-1 in the UFC, including a current three-fight win streak. Notable wins include decision victories over Rick Story, Diego Sanchez, and Pascal Krauss. Hathaway’s only professional loss was a unanimous decision to Mike Pyle at UFC 120.
