The Ultimate Fighter member Manley lost his one and only fight in the UFC to fellow TUF castmate Neil Magny by unanimous decision.

Former Strikeforce fighter Fodor recently made his transition to the UFC after a bout in Strikeforce, but at UFC 157 “The Future” lost his fight to Sam Stout by split decision.

Neer is the man who once before was released from UFC after a loss by unanimous decision to Gleison Tibau at UFC 104 on October 24, 2009 in Los Angeles, California. His last fight, at UFC 157, he lost to Court McGee by decision.

Jardine has lost both his two fights in the UFC where in the first to Rick Story by unanimous decision at UFC on FX 4 - Maynard vs. Guida on January 22 last year, and in the last fight to Kenny Robertson by kneebar.
