In 2010, after losing three times in four fights, he decided to move up in weight class. He went on to make his welterweight debut at UFC 111 against Rory Markham. After the weigh-ins, the fight was changed to a catchweight match. He gradually won by TKO in the first round. After that, he decided to compete in both weight classes. In a welterweight match at UFC 118, he defeated Marcus Davis by choking him unconscious via a guillotine choke submission.
