Cathal Pendred and the 10 Best UFC Comebacks of 2014

Cathal Pendred was on the verge of having his UFC dreams come to an end.

After falling short of the finals on The Ultimate Fighter 19, Pendred was knocked down and hurt badly in his official UFC debut against Mike King. With a few more unanswered punches, the Irishman would have gone the way of so many unsuccessful TUF veterans before him.
