Shamar Bailey and Danny Castillo kick off the night's action as the first fight on the UFC 139 undercard. The bout will stream live on Facebook. Both fighters suffered a loss in their last fight and are looking to improve their position in the UFC.
How do these two stack up?
Castillo: 32 years old | 5'9" | 71" reach Bailey: 29 years old | 5'9"
Danny Castillo had a fairly successful run during his time in the WEC, only picking up losses against top names like Donald Cerrone, Shane Roller and Anthony Pettis. The Team Alpha Male fighter won his UFC debut with a decision over former UFC lightweight title challenger Joe Stevenson. Jacob Volkmann brought him back down to earth by dragging him to a decision loss in a bit of an ugly fight.
Shamar Bailey is the kind of fighter for whom The Ultimate Fighter was probably his only path to the UFC. Despite having lost two straight fights, he secured a spot on the show and managed to win his bout on the finale broadcast to ensure more UFC bouts in his future. He dropped from welterweight back to lightweight only to lose to Evan Dunham at UFC Fight Night 25.
