“The Ultimate Fighter 8” winner Efrain Escudero recently fought his way back into the UFC and claimed a late-notice replacement slot.

Unfortunately, he ran into fast-rising lightweight Jacob Volkmann, who used takedowns and a dominant top game to largely cruise to a shutout unanimous-decision victory.

The preliminary-card fight was part of UFC 141, which took place at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. It streamed on Facebook prior to the night’s Spike TV and pay-per-view broadcasts.

Escudero, who was released from the UFC in 2010 after missing weight and losing a fight, filled in for injured T.J. Grant. But most of the bout was simply frustrating for the Arizona-based fighter.

A variety of kicks and solid takedown defense allowed Diego Nunes to scored a decision victory over the tough Manny Gamburyan.

The featherweight bout served as the curtain-jerker for UFC 141, which took place at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena.

It was one of three bouts that streamed on Facebook prior to the night’s Spike TV and pay-per-view broadcasts.

The fighters traded strikes early with Nunes working a variety of kicks and Gamburyan some looping punches. After an initial struggle, Gamburyan got a takedown, but Nunes quickly returned to his feet and unloaded some crisp kicks to close out the round.
