David Mitchell’s UFC record dropped to 1-3 after suffering a second round TKO loss to Mike Pierce at UFC 162. Mitchell earned his first win in the octagon in his previous fight, a unanimous decision victory over Simeon Thoresen in January of this year.

Ildemar Alcantara improved his record to 2-0 inside the octagon at UFC on Fuel TV 10, earning a unanimous decision over Leandro Silva at 155-pounds, his normal weight class. Alcantara took a short notice fight against Wagner Prado as a light heavyweight in his UFC debut and submitted him in the second round.

Ultimate Fighter 16 alumni, Igor Araujo gets a shot in the UFC on the heels of a current four-fight win streak. Like many of his castmates, he wasn’t given a fight on the show’s finally, but earned a spot on the roster with a decision victory over another TUF veteran, Nic Herron-Webb at Flawless FC 3.

Allan Patrick brings a perfect 10-0 record with him to the UFC, with half of his career victories coming by way of stoppages (3 KO/TKO, 2 Sub). Most recently, Patrick earned a unanimous decision over Claudiere Freitas at Bitetti Combat 15 last May.

Despite not competing in the cage for nearly a year, Garett Whitely signs with the UFC, carrying a undefeated 5-0 record. He last competed in November of last year, submitting Evan DeLong in the second round at an Absolute Cage Fighting event. All five career victories have come by stoppages (2 KO/TKO, 3 Sub).

Mike Pierce extended his win streak to four following a second round TKO victory over David Mitchell at UFC 162. Pierce remains one of the most underrated fighters in the UFC, despite nine wins in one of the promotion’s toughest division. Controversial split decision losses to Johnny Hendricks and Josh Koscheck likely play apart of that.

Rousimar Palhares returns from his nine month suspension following an elevated testosterone level after his first round knockout loss to Hector Lombard at UFC on FX 6. After amassing a 7-4 record as a middleweight, Palhares will return to the octagon as a welterweight for the first time in his career. His name might be on the chopping block with a loss, following a two-fight losing streak, including the loss to Lombard and Alan Belcher.

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.

Highly-touted prospect, Hacran Dias suffered only the second loss of his career at UFC on FX 8, dropping a unanimous decision to Nik Lentz. The defeat snapped a nine-fight win streak, which included a decision victory over Iuri Alcantara in his UFC debut.

Rodrigo Damm got his second UFC victory at UFC on Fuel TV 10 with a closely-contested split decision victory over Mizuto Hirota. He’s now 2-1 in the UFC, including a submission win over Anistavio Gasparzinho  and  decision loss to Antonio Carvalho.

Not long ago, Chris Cariaso was on the cusp of title contention in the UFC’s flyweight division, but now finds himself in dire need of a win following two straight losses in the octagon. Cariaso began his UFC career with a 3-1 record as a bantamweight, but then decided to drop to the 125-pound division and picked up a win against Josh Ferguson. Since, he’s lost back-to-back fights against John Moraga and Jussier da Silva.

Iliarde Santos will get a third opportunity to get a victory in the UFC, following a two-fight losing streak to begin his UFC career. He made his UFC debut in May, taking a short notice fight against Iuri Alcantara in the bantamweight division, but lost via first round knockout. Santos then dropped to his usual fighting weight, but was given the former #1 ranked flyweight Ian McCall, where despite fighting well, ultimately lost a decision.

TJ Dillashaw took another step forward towards adding his name among the elite fighters atop the UFC bantamweight division with an impressive first round knockout victory over Hugo Viana at UFC on FOX 7. He’s now won four straight fights since losing to John Dodson in the Ultimate Fighter 14 bantamweight finale.

Raphael Assuncao has quietly won four consecutive fights in the UFC, dating back to August of 2011. After suffering a first round knockout loss to Erik Koch at UFC 128, Assuncao dropped to the 135-pound division where he’s gone 4-0, including wins over Johnny Eduardo, Mike Easton, and Vaughan Lee.

Joey Beltran looks to compete for the first time in 2013, since testing positive for a banned substance after his decision victory over Igor Pokrajac at UFC on FX 6. He was suspended nine months and the result of the fight was overturned to a no contest. So officially, Beltran has lost three out his last four fights, with his only victory since June of 2011, coming outside the UFC, a unanimous decision win over Anton Talamantes at a C3 Fights event.

Brazilian slugger, Fabio Maldonado likely saved himself from the UFC’s chopping block, earning a unanimous decision over Roger Hollett at UFC on FX 8. The win snapped a three-fight losing streak, including decision losses to Kyle Kingsbury and Igor Pokrajac and a TKO loss to Glover Teixeira.
