BAMMA USA's BadBeat 5 took place last night (Fri., March 16, 2012) at the Commerce Casino in Commerce, Calif., and featured a nine-fight card with plenty of UFC flavor.

The main event of the evening saw Mike Guymon make his return to active competition for the first time since announcing his retirement following a submission loss to DaMarques Johnson in Jan. 2011.

Guymon took on Cris Levya, who proved to be a formidable foe, giving Guymon a run for his money in the opening frame. He faded in the second, though, and was eventually overwhelmed with punches.

Welcome back to MMA, "Joker."

Gabe Ruediger was also in action on the card, as he squared off against Scott Catlin, who boasted a career record of 4-6 heading into the night's festivities. Make it 5-6 after he ripped off a technical knockout in the second round.

"Godzilla" who?
