The one bright spot on a long UFC Fight Night 28 preliminary card was Bantamweight Lucas Martins' quick submission victory over Junior Hernandez. Martins came out aggressive and hurt Hernandez standing then followed up quickly with a rear naked choke.

After that brief burst of excitement, Kevin Souza and Felipe Arantes returned to the mean of the very lacklustre card and dragged out another interminable close fight. Souza had the clear advantage striking but Arantes was able to take him down early. It wasn't enough as Souza did enough late to get a split decision victory.
