Weekend Results: Rolles Gracie Wins by Arm-Triangle Submission

Heavyweight Rolles Gracie bounced back from last year's one-and-done UFC 109 stint with a submission win Friday at UCC 4 in Morristown, N.J.

Early in the first round, Gracie secured a takedown against Braden Bice, climbed to full mount and applied an arm-triangle choke for the tap out at 65 seconds.

Gracie, the son of Rolls, who is the nephew of the father of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Helio, improved to 4-1 with all his wins coming by submissions.

Check out the video of the fight after the jump as well as other notable results from this past weekend.

-- Seth Petruzelli, most known for knocking out Kimbo Slice in 14 seconds, returned to the regional scene Friday at WEF 46 in Orlando, Calif., stopping David Mewborn in the first round. Petruzelli dropped Mewborn with a right hand and followed up with rapid-fire left hands for the finish at three minutes and six seconds. Petruzelli, now 13-6, worked his way back into the UFC last year, but was released after losses to Ricardo Romero and Karlos Vemola.

Petruzelli wins by TKO.

-- Bobby Green (15-4) took the King of the Cage lightweight title away from Dom O'Grady Thursday at King of the Cage in Highland, Calif. with the unanimous decision after five rounds. You may remember Green as Dan Lauzon's opponent at the first Affliction pay-per-view in January 2009.
