Former UFC Fighter Comes Out of Retirement, Wins With Spectacular Slam Knockout

Gerald Harris knocked out Aaron Cobb at Legacy FC 63 on Friday night. According to MMA Junkie, the fight was originally slated to be contested at welterweight (185 pounds), but Cobb showed up at weigh-ins at more than 220-pounds. Harris ended up chugging water to get up to 208 pounds so that the fight could be held at heavyweight.

Harris, 37, pulled off something similar in the UFC back in 2010 when he knocked out David Branch with a body slam. Harris went 3-1 in the UFC, but was cut after his lone loss. He then spent a few years in various promotions before announcing his retirement in April 2014. He last fought in August 2013.
