The UFC's 145-pound featherweight division saw very little shuffling following Ultimate Fight Night 25. The event featured a pair of bouts within the division, as Ultimate Fighter winner Jonathan Brookins returned to battle rising contender Erik Koch, and Mike Lullo made his divisional debut by welcoming Robert Peralta to the Octagon.
Brookins and Koch had the most to gain at this event, as both fighters have already faced some of the division's elite. Brookins fell victim to current champion Jose Aldo in the WEC, while Koch's only career loss came to current No. 1 contender Chad Mendes.
With Koch's victory, he moved one step closer to a title shot.
