Mike Easton (10-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) signed under contract for the UFC last July 26, 2011. This Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt holder attained multiple victories, including split-decision wins over John Dodson and former WEC champion Chase Beebe. However, after defending his title against Beebe, he suffered from an elbow injury which forced him to undergo multiple surgeries keeping the MMA fighter out of the cage for two years.
