MMA: UFC Fight Night-Utica- Brooks v Torres Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

Jose Torres scored one of the craziest victories in UFC history at Friday’s Fight Night card in Utica, N.Y., and Jared Brooks called it luck.

Brooks welcomed the former Titan FC two-division champion to the Octagon for the first time on Friday, and ended up knocking himself out when a slam went wrong in the second round of their flyweight bout.

“[You’re] lucky that I knocked myself out and you didn’t do sh*t to me that whole fight,” Brooks wrote to Torres on Twitter. “Just seen your after fight interview well played but if we run that shit back I beat you 9 times out of 10 and the only time you do is me KOing myself!”

The crazy finish brought Brooks’ UFC record to 1-2, while Torres improved to 8-0 as a professional fighter with six stoppage wins.
