Brunson (10-2) won his UFC debut at the end of 2012 with a decision win over Chris Leben and was scheduled to face Ronny Markes at UFC on FUEL TV 10 earlier this month. The fight was canceled on the day of the weigh-ins due to Markes being in a car accident and Brunson was pulled from the card.

All of his wins have come by TKO/KO and three of his wins have come in the first round.

During his two fight losing streak, both defeats have come by TKO with his most recent defeat coming against Michael Kuiper. Cedenblad (10-4) lost his UFC debut at UFC on FUEL TV 2 and this will be his first fight since that defeat. Nine of his ten career wins are by stoppage with six of those wins coming by TKO/KO.
Krauss (11-1) has won two of his three fights in the UFC and his win over Mark Scanlon in his debut at UFC 122 was awarded the fight of the night bonus. He is coming off a decision win over Mike Stumpf and all of his fights in the UFC have gone to the decision. Lim (11-3-1) won his UFC debut earlier this year against Marcelo Guimaraes and won the fight by knockout. Four of his last five victories are by knockout and he has eight career knockout victories.
