Starting off the FX portion of the prelims were a pair of interesting 145’ers, Hettes the favorite was not able to completely solve the shorter and quicker Brimage. Hettes suffered the 1st loss of his career while Brimage 3-0 in his UFC career. Pierson was able to channel is inner Canadian to pull out the razor close decision over the American Benosit. Pierson adds a second win a row, while Benosit adds a second loss in a row. Grant and Dunham put on a crazy back in forth that should garner fight of the night consideration. Grant just pushed by Dunham earning his 3rd win at 155, while Dunham dropped his 1st loss in his last 3 fights. Magalhaes comes back to the UFC after picking up wins in M-1 and does what you think he would do… He forced Pokrajac to tap, giving Pokrajac his 1st loss in 4 fights, while Magalhaes picks up his 6 win in a row.
