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.

Jeff Hougland (10-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC), meanwhile, is readying for his second UFC fight — following his promotional debut at UFC 132, wherein he defeated Donny Walker via a unanimous-decision. The fighter currently holds a record of 1-4, which includes the TKO loss over Gilbert Melendez at WEC 6 way back in March 2003.
