Bellator 122 Results: Koreshkov Batters McDonough, Halsey Submits Cooper, Parisyan Obliterates Baroni

Bellator's first event under Scott Coker's reign is over. Andrey Koreshkov blasted Adam McDonough en  route to a unanimous decision victory and Brandon Halsey dominated Brett Cooper with a first round submission win. The event was one of Bellator's better ones. We've recapped the entire card for you (and threw in some GIFs--which are all courtesy of Zombie Prophet/Fansided): The Bellator 122 prelims were packed with action. Saad Awad pulled off one of the best TKOs from the bottom in recent memory against Joe Duarte. After getting blasted with a right hand, Awad crumbled to the mat. However, Duarte got over aggressive and Awad snagged him in a triangle. The ref called the fight about a billion elbows to Duarte's temple later. Check out the GIF. Other significant prelim happenings: The unheralded Fernando Gonzalez upset Bellator mainstay Karl Amoussou via unanimous decision. Gonzalez was simply quicker and better conditioned. One has to wonder about Amoussou's future in Bellator. Bellator put a light heavyweight tournament semifinal on the prelims. Kelly Anundson took on Luiz Philipe Lins, but the fight didn't last long. Lins collapsed to the canvas a few minutes into the first round with a knee injury. Anundson was therefore awarded with a TKO victory. More prelim action: Wrestling standout Bubba Jenkins steamrolled over Poppies Martinez, taking him down and scoring a TKO via ground and pound (GIF) in the first frame. Get the rundown of the main card--plus the precious GIFs--after the jump.

UFC on FOX 12 Weigh-In Results: Matt Brown Misses Weight, Avoids Punishment Because of ‘Miscommunication’

(Props: UFC on YouTube) UFC on FOX 12 weigh-ins went down earlier today in San Jose, and no, they did not proceed without incident. Most notably, Matt Brown came in way heavy on his first attempt, tipping the scales at 172.5 pounds for his welterweight headliner against Robbie Lawler. Usually, a fighter in his position would grit his teeth and go back to the sauna for an hour. But due to a weird miscommunication, that didn't happen. FOX Sports's Marc Raimondi has the report: [After missing weight], Brown was advised by a commission doctor that he should not continue to cut weight. By rule, a fighter has another hour to try to make weight. Brown thought the doctor was telling him he would not be allowed to weigh in again, according to CSAC executive officer Andy Foster. "There's a difference between advisement from a doctor and a directive by a doctor," Foster told FOX Sports. When a fighter misses weight in California, he or she must forfeit 20 percent of his or her purse, 10 percent to the commission and 10 percent to the opponent. After a discussion between the UFC and commission officials, the CSAC decided not to fine Brown. "We were just looking after his health and safety, but I was going to let him on [the scale again]," Foster said. "I was going to give him his time. Chalk it up to miscommunication."

Henry Cejudo Signs With the UFC, Will Meet Scott Jorgensen at UFC 177

(Henry Cejudo wrestles a crazed MMA fan. / Photo via Getty) Well, Potato Nation, it appears we may have been...wrong. Emphasis on may have been. A few months ago, we called Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo the biggest bust in MMA history. At the time, there was plenty of evidence to support it--specifically his apparent lack of focus (and sanity) as far as MMA was concerned. Then there was his involvement with a cult of weird, new age, self-help loons.

The War Begins Between Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been criticized for his use of social media in the past, but he appears to have found the right balance. Jones will meet Daniel Cormier at UFC 178 after a knee injury knocked Alexander Gustafsson out of the September fight in Las Vegas. Jones and Cormier have had […]

Jeff ‘Karmaatemycat’ Watts Scored a First-Round Submission at Cage Titans 19, And We Finally Have a Video to Show You

("From parts unknown." Gotta love this dude.) After a long injury-related hiatus, our dear friend Jeff Watts — aka Karmaatemycat — was back in the cage last month at Cage Titans FC 19 in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where he submitted Max Barrett with a triangle-armbar, midway through the first round of their amateur bantamweight fight. At the video's 1:53 mark, you will see the face of pure evil? Jeff giving CagePotato a subtle plug with a devil's horns gesture. The fight itself starts at the 5:57 mark, and Jeff starts out in three-point troll stance, daring Barrett to enter his world. Barrett gets so flustered that he slips to the mat trying to uppercut Jeff in the face. Though we've always been impressed by Karma's rock-solid grappling game, he's gotten even better since his last outing. Once Jeff scores a takedown and starts working his jiu-jitsu, Barrett is on borrowed time. Skip to the 7:17 mark to see Jeff yank Barrett's left arm off of his head, and immediately transition to an armbar attempt. For a moment (around 8:26), it looks like Barrett succeeds in escaping the armbar, but Jeff only tightens the noose, and now Barrett is caught in a choke as well. Checkmate. It's awesome to see a friend succeed — especially a big-hearted guy like Jeff who is loyal to every single person who's helped him. Congratulations, buddy. You deserve this victory, and we can't wait for the next one.

Video: This One-Punch Walk-Off Slow-Motion Falling-Tree Street-Fight Easy-Listening Knockout Is FAAAAABULOUS!!

(Props: MiddleEasy) Yeah, that's a lot of adjectives for a fight that lasts two seconds. But hey, watch the video yourself and see if we're lying to you. A guy gets dummied up with a single punch then remains on his feet for an impressive length of time before going full sequoia, after which the non-combatant in the striped t-shirt falls out like he's judging a drag show. The instant replay is soundtracked by Enya. If you don't enjoy this sort of thing, fighting's just not in your DNA, honey.

Nick Diaz Re-Signs With UFC (!), Anderson Silva Fight Possible for February 2015 (!!!)

(Your father would be so proud of you right now, Nick. / Photo via @danawhite) The bad boy is back, baby. The UFC announced this evening that welterweight star Nick Diaz has signed a three-fight contract extension, and will tentatively return to action in early 2015, against an opponent to be named later. (Probably not Joe Riggs.) Diaz has been "retired" since his decision loss to Georges St. Pierre in their title fight at UFC 158 in March 2013. Since then, the Mayor of Stockton™ has popped up here and there to threaten folks with an ass-whoopin', but refused to return to the UFC unless it was for a title fight. Luckily, a 16-month vacation has changed his opinion. Sort of. Here's what Diaz said to UFC.com about his current goals and what he's been up to lately: "I've been doing a whole lot of not getting punched around-type stuff," Diaz said Thursday afternoon at UFC headquarters. "I've been staying in shape pretty good, doing a lot of running. It's been a good experience having this much time off." The target for Diaz and the UFC is to get him back in the cage early next year, but the confident 30-year-old fighter said he'd be ready to fight tomorrow. "Next year I guess, whatever though. I can fight tomorrow; tonight," he said. "You have to do what you have to do. ... [I came today] to sort things out with Dana White and Lorenzo [Fertitta].

Paulo Thiago vs. Joe Riggs Booked for UFC Fight Night 51 — Yes, *That* Joe Riggs. Seriously.

(Photo via Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com) Brazilian welterweight Paulo Thiago was slated to face Mike "Biggie" Rhodes in a "win or get fired" fight at UFC Fight Night 51: Bigfoot vs. Arlovski (September 13th; Brasilia, Brazil), but Rhodes has withdrawn from the fight due to injury. Coming in to replace Rhodes against Thiago is...Joe Riggs? Really? UFC officials confirmed the unexpected booking after an initial report from Combate. Riggs is on a six-fight win streak, most recently out-pointing Mike Bronzoulis at Bellator 106 in November to win the first (and last) season of Fight Master. Riggs hasn't competed in the Octagon since a 4-4 UFC stint way back in 2004-2006, which ended with a quick 'n' gnarly knockout loss to Diego Sanchez at UFC Fight Night 7. (This is the only theory that makes sense.)

#ThrowbackThursday: 25 Rare and Classic UFC Photos From the ’90s

(Marco Ruas and Paul Varelans: When men were men, knuckles were bare, and wearing a singlet was totally acceptable.) As thrilling as the UFC can be in the 21st century — with its well-rounded, well-conditioned fighters and deep talent pools — there's something special about the Wild West days of the 1990s. Back then, the UFC featured a motley crew of martial artists of varying skill levels, some of whom didn't really look like professional athletes. This was the era of single-night tournaments, non-existent weight classes, and burping into microphones. It's hard not to miss those days. Today we pay tribute to the old-school with some of our favorite rare and classic UFC photos from the '90s. Check 'em out in the gallery after the jump, and if we've left out any of your favorites, let us know in the comments section or on twitter.
