28 year old Takeya Mizugaki (15-7-2) has had a strange career in the cage ever since moving to America and joining the now defunct WEC. During his nine fight spell under WEC/UFC, the Japanese star has followed a pattern of 'win one-lose one', amassing a 4-5 streak. Mizugaki was last seen losing a split decision to Chris Cariaso at UFC 144, which means, going by his record, that he is due to win this one.
Jeff "Hellbound" Hougland is currently 1-1 since joining the UFC in early 2011, winning his debut against Donny Walker at UFC 132, before losing his most recent bout to Yves Jabouin at UFC on FUEL TV 3. Hougland once took a four year break from the sport between 2006-2010.
UFC 151 will feature a UFC light heavyweight title fight between Jon "Bones" Jones and Dan Henderson.
