However before the pair of defeats, he went on a 11 fight winning streak surpassing 4 years that included going 4-0 in the UFC and a win over former UFC Welterweight Champion, Carlos Newton at Impact FC 1.

Howard has gone 2-1 in the UFC upon his return from a 2 year absence, but he lost in his last outing to Ryan Laflare via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 39.
