This Weekend in Fights! (October 6th, 2012) featured UFC on FX 5 in Minnesota, Bellator 75 in Indiana on Friday.  Invicta FC 3 in Kansas City, ONE FC 6 in Singapore, CES MMA in Rhode Island, Superior 8 in Sweden, Rumble in the Cage 46 in Alberta, Cage Fighting Alliance 8 in Florida, and King of the Cage in Oklahoma.

The UFC kicked off the weekend with UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot on Friday night from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the main event Antonio Silva picked up his first UFC victory and handed  Travis Browne his first career loss with a first round punch that sent Browne crumbling to the mat. Browne pulled his hamstring after throwing a kick, which may have affected his performance, nonetheless Silva displayed great striking. Jake Ellenberger and the returning Jay Hieron had a lackluster Welterweight bout that rendered Ellenberger the winner after three rounds. John Dodson became the number one contender for Demetrious Johnson’s UFC Flyweight title when he dropped the formally number one ranked Flyweight in the world Jussier Formiga in the second round. In the submission of the night Justin Edwards slapped a guillotine choke on Josh Neer during clinching. Neer attempted to fight it but was choked unconscious for his efforts 45-seconds into the bout. In two come from behind victories, both Michael Johnson and Mike Pierce won second round knockouts. After being dominated in the first round Johnson dropped Danny Castillo while Pierce dropped Aaron Simpson. (Full UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot event results below.)

Bellator 75 featured the opening round of the season 7 Heavyweight tournament to crown a new Heavyweight champion with the retirement of then champion Cole Konrad from  The Venue at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana. In what was reminiscent of their first bout Eric Prindle got himself disqualified by kicking Thiago Santos in the groin when he found himself in trouble. With the kick Santos advanced into the semifinals. Russian striker Alexander Volkov picked apart Brett Rogers for three rounds to advance with a unanimous decision. Although a Light Heavyweight, Richard Hale was able to advance into the Heavyweight semifinals with a 79-second TKO of Mike Wessel. Vinicius Queiroz was the only quarter-finalist to socore a submission victory in the opening round with an arm bar mid way through the first round. (Full Bellator 75 event results below.)

It took 5:15 for Soo Chul Kim to become the first ONE FC Bantamweight title by knocking out Leandro Issa in the second round. Challengers on on the rise as Jens Pulver, Masakatsu Ueda, and Kevin Belingon punched their tickets into the semifinals of the ONC FC bantamweight-grand-prix opening round.

The Tristar gym member picked up a first round doctor stoppage TKO over Chris McNally, making it two in a row for the Crow.
