Former IFL middleweight champion, Matt Horwich has been the poster-child of inconsistency his entire fighting career. He’s won two of his last three fights, including  victories over former UFC title contender Thales Leites and NCAA Division I National Champion wrestler, Jake Rosholt. Horowich dropped a split decision to Eric Shambari last September for Bellator Fighting Championships.

Danillo Villefort is still considered one of the top prospects in the 185-pound division. Since losing to Jesse Lennox due to a doctor’s stoppage in his only UFC fight, Villefort has since gone on a three-fight winning streak. Villefort most recenty defeated former Strikeforce contender, Joey Villasenor by unanimous decision on just a week’s notice.
