“The Hitman” is now 14-1 and was strongly considered to be the best British prospect in the UFC after defeating the likes of Rick Story, Paul Taylor, and Diego Sanchez. Hathaway then fell short at UFC 120 when pitted against experienced grappler Mike Pyle who controlled and beat up on the brit to take the unanimous decision.

Since appearing on TUF, Kris ‘Savage’ McCray was submitted in the second round of the season finale by Court McGee before cutting to 170 pounds to face Carlos Eduardo Rocha at UFC 122 in November. McCray was quickly submitted by a nasty kneebar.
