After back-to-back losses and a 4-7 record from 2005 to mid-2008, UFC and PRIDE veteran Yves Edwards was worried that his once-dominant reputation would be spoiled upon his exit from the fight game.

This past weekend, though, the 33-year-old Edwards (36-15-1) continued his comeback and picked up his second straight victory with a first-round TKO win over fellow 50-fight veteran and former WEC fighter Kyle Jensen (39-11-2).

The bout headlined Raging Wolf's fifth event, "Mayhem in the Mist," a pro-am card at the Seneca Niagara Casino Events Center, which is part of the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel in New York.

Good to hear, I saw him last week and he seemed confident and in good shape...I have always liked Yves...wouldn't mind seeing him in Strikeforce or Dream maybe..

How did they hold an MMA event in NY?

Ha, I think Jensen just won a fight against Clementi. He prob really wanted this win to get to big ones and possibly move up to a bigger org but too bad.

It just means it wasn't regulated by an AC. Even though it isn't necessarily illegal in a state, the UFC waits for regulation before holding an event there.

Did they meet at a catch weight or has Yves moved back up to WW, or what....I don't know what weight Jensen's been fighting at?

im not 100% but since clementi was jensens last fight and it was at 155, im assuming this was also a LW fight.
