UFC 168

December 28th, 2013

Las Vegas, Nevada

MGM Grand Garden Arena

————————————————————

Dustin Poirier proved once again that he remains one of the elite fighters in the UFC’s featherweight division with a decisive unanimous decision victory over Erik Koch at UFC 164. He’s traded wins and losses since February of last year, also earning victories over Max Holloway and Jonathan Brookins, both by submission. Losses were a fourth round submission defeat to Chang Sung Jung and a decision loss to Cub Swanson at UFC on Fuel TV 7.

Season 14 winner of the Ultimate Fighter, Diego Brandao extended his win streak to three inside the octagon after a one-sided unanimous decision victory over Daniel Pineda at UFC Fight Night 26. He’s now 4-1 in the UFC, including wins over Dennis Bermudez, Joey Gambino, and Pablo Garza.

Another loss might very well end the career of fan-favorite, Chris Leben, who has lost four out his last five fights, including a current three-fight losing streak. Last time in the cage, Leben didn’t have much to offer Andrew Craig, who dominated the fight despite the ludicrous split decision announcement. The last time Leben got his hand raised in the cage was after a 27-second knockout of Wanderlei Silva back in July of 2011.

Deemed as the “next Anderson Silva” on the last season of the Ultimate Fighter, Uriah Hall now likely needs a victory to keep his spot on the UFC’s middleweight roster following an 0-2 start to his UFC career. Hall made his UFC debut on the show’s live finale, but lost a split decision to Kelvin Gastelum in a shocking upset. He then made his sophomore appearance in the octagon at UFC Fight Night 26, but lost a lack-luster decision to John Howard.

Uriah Hall fell just short on his quest to become the 17th victor of the Ultimate Fighter, when he lost a split decision to Kelvin Gastelum in the show’s finale. The loss snapped a three-fight winning streak, which included a decision victory over fellow prospect Nodar Kuduxashvilli at Ring of Combat 41.

John Howard returns to the UFC for the first time since his release from the promotion in June of 2011. Over the past couple years, he’s amassed a 6-1 record on the regional circuit, including a first round knockout victory over Chris Woodall last month at a CES event. Howard went 4-3 in his last stint in the UFC, beginning 4-0, but lost three consecutive fights prompting his release.
