A loss can be extremely detrimental to an MMA fighter's career. In some cases, it can take a fighter years to build themself back up to where they were before losing.
Of the eleven fighters to lose at UFC Fight For The Troops 2, Evan Dunham's loss probably hurt the most. Even after a split decision loss to Sean Sherk, Dunham was being considered a borderline contender in the lightweight division.

Dunham's next fight will be a crucial one in his climb back to contender status, so let's take a look at what could be next for him and the other UFC Fight For The Troops 2 losers.
