    It's very rare that a fighter just has one fight in the UFC, once that fighter has made it there.

    The usual standard for a fighter losing their debut, is that they get at least one more fight to redeem themselves. If they don't, they are usually released after going 0 - 2.

    Here though, are some one and done UFC fighters. Not counting any fighters one and done before 2001 (Zuffa purchase) - so no Kazushi Sakuraba when he fought at UFC Ultimate Japan in 1997 (...twice in fact due to a referee error - the early days were a lot different).

    Maiquel Falcao

    1 - 0 in the UFC. Defeated Gerald Harris at UFC 123.

    Neil Wain

    0 - 1 in the UFC. Lost to Shane Carwin at UFC 89.

    James Zikic

    0 - 1 in the UFC. Lost to Phillip Miller at UFC 38.

    Neil Grove

    0 - 1 in the UFC. Lost to Mike Ciesnolevicz at UFC 95.

    Dmitriy Sosnovskiy

    1 - 0 in the UFC. Defeated Mark Godbeer at UFC FN 127.

    Jimmy Flick

    1 - 0 in the UFC. Defeated Cody Durden at UFC FN 183.

    James Tony

    0 - 1 in the UFC. Lost to Randy Couture at UFC 118.

    Am I missing any?

    This one is an excellent one. He only had one UFC fight, a loss to Matt Hughes in 2010.

    Both of these are great ones.

    Good job in your career, bro. I'm going to go hunting tomorrow after work and watch some of your fights. Glad to hear you're still close with Dana and CO. All the best to you, good sir.

    So how did that happen? Did they come to you? Did you pursue them to get a fight?
