The welterweight division is in a bit of a limbo here, as Mike Swick, another front-runner for Georges St. Pierre's title, was sent tumbling down the mountain.
However, Dana White can't have his champion waiting impatiently while the rest of the division try and prove themselves worthy. Thus, Dan Hardy was granted the title shot with his impressive victory over Swick.
November also offered a great deal of other welterweight fighters, as Josh Koscheck proved that he should be considered one of the top contenders, as well as proving Anthony Johnson still needs some slight improvement before stepping against the top 10.
Paulo Thiago won impressively against a relatively unknown, yet very game opponent in Jacob Volkmann.
Ben Saunders showcased his deadly muay thai, as he was the first fighter to knock out Marcus Davis, earning a spot on the board.
