Before the UFC 150: "Henderson vs. Edgar 2" main card kicked off on pay-per-view (PPV) tonight (Sat., Aug. 11, 2012) from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, an entire five-bout preliminary card was broadcast on Facebook and FX, respectively.

The night began with "Prelims" legend Nik Lentz scoring his first win in three fights with an opening round technical knockout over Eiji Mitsuoka. It was an impressive showing from "The Carny," who was making his featherweight debut.

Undefeated in his new digs!

Next up was a bantamweight battle pitting the struggling Dustin Pague taking on Octagon newcomer Chico Camus. Pague spent the first round trying to work a triangle and staying busy on bottom. This basically repeated itself in the second, sans triangle, but with Camus winning the battle of volume.

The deciding third and final round saw "The Disciple" quickly take his opponent's back and work for another submission but never get it. Camus actually reversed and did the same, briefly locking in a rear-naked choke.

When all was said and done, it was close but Camus earned the unanimous decision win. Not a bad first impression.

The action didn't end there. After the jump, get complete results and recaps from the remainder of the UFC 150: "Henderson vs. Edgar 2" preliminary card.

Erik Perez's debut with the UFC ended in controversy when he was awarded a submission win over John Albert at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15 Finale despite the fact that Albert didn't tap nor verbally submit.

No such controversy here.

That's because Perez got clipped early by his opponent, Ken Stone, but came back over the top with a hard right hand of his own that had Stone doing a face plant.

Referee Herb Dean let the two continue but Perez knocked Stone out again with the follow up punches, and maybe again after Stone briefly woke up once more. Even then, once Dean had stepped in, Stone came to rather quickly and attempted to continue.

Too late.

Perez had famed trainer Greg Jackson in his corner, which should serve to quiet a doubter or two, considering the knockout came just 17 seconds into the opening frame.

Michael Kuiper came into the evening hoping to erase the memory of his UFC debut defeat back in February against veteran fighter Jared Hamman.

And that's exactly what he did.

Put simply, Kuiper destroyed Hamman in the first round, blasting him with a mix of punches and kicks that had "The Messenger" on the ropes throughout the entire frame. He avoided getting finished but the assault continued into the second, where "Judo" just kept unloading offense.

It got ugly. Hamman ate punches, wobbled around, stayed alive somehow, and continued eating punches. At some point it became uncomfortable. Hamman's corner, who were told by the man himself he thought he tore a muscle in his leg, which was partially responsible for his unable to stand up or walk properly, refused to throw in the towel, instead waiting until the punishment was so severe, the referee stepped in for them.

Just bad.

If you didn't know who Tom Hayden was coming into tonight, you likely still don't. He lost his UFC debut and while he had some early success against Dennis Bermudez, knocking him down with a big knee and attempting a submission, he ultimately fell to a standing guillotine.

Don't be surprised if he falls to the firing squad next.

Here are the complete results from the UFC 150 preliminary card:

145 lbs.: Dennis Bermudez def. Tom Hayden via submission (standing guillotine choke)
185 lbs.: Michael Kuiper def. Jared Hamman via TKO at 2:15 of round two
135 lbs.: Erik Perez def. Ken Stone via TKO at 0:17 of round one
135 lbs.: Chico Camus def. Dustin Pague via unanimous decision
145 lbs.: Nik Lentz def. Eiji Mitsuoka via TKO at 3:45 of round one

That's it for the "Prelims" portion of the UFC 150 fight card.
