Former Ultimate Fighter winner Joe Stevenson may be on his last legs in the UFC.

Stevenson was defeated by UFC newcomer Danny Castillo by unanimous decision Thursday at the UFC on Versus 3 card in Louisville, Kentucky, giving Stevenson his third consecutive loss. The UFC may not give him a chance to make it four in a row.

After the fight, which the judges scored for Castillo 30-27, 29-28 and 29-28, Castillo had nothing but positive things to say about Stevenson.

wow, i was really impressed by the speed and quality of the stream. HD super clear, no latency, and I'm running wireless. i guess it's because i just got a new computer, so all you guys complaining of bad streams need to hit up tigerdirect.com, son!oh, I also have the standard Comcast ISP.

 Excellent post. He seemed content to trade early, got lit up, and it led to him having nothing on his takedowns later.  He needed to shoot from the opening bell.

Diabate fights like the traditional MT guy that he is - no killer instinct, no concern about finishing.  Great striker but boring to watch.

 He could have finished him in the first minute of the 2nd . Cantwell was a walking zombie with zero defense , just needed a solid flurry and he would get dropped  .

Honestly, if Diabate turned it up just a bit more there in the end, he could have finished Cantwell, and I'm sure after reviewing the tape, Diabate will agree.
