Video: ‘Karmaatemycat’ Kicks Dude’s Ass in Wisconsin

Jeff Watts karmaatemycat MMA

Big, big congratulations to Potato Nation member Jeff “karmaatemycat” Watts, who increased his amateur MMA record to 2-1 on Saturday night, scoring a dominant decision victory over Rusty Dafoe at the LCO Cage Fights event in Hayward, Wisconsin. And as promised, he came out wearing his CagePotato Devil Horns t-shirt, like a boss. You did us proud, buddy. Video of the fight is after the jump, along with some play-by-play…

Round 1: Jeff wades through an overhand right and scores a quick takedown. He’s reversed on the mat, and starts to work a series of submission attempts off his back. Nothing pans out, so he uses a triangle setup to flip Dafoe, landing directly in mount. Watts batters his opponent until the end of the round, taking the first frame in dramatic fashion.

Round 2: Again, Jeff nails the takedown at his earliest opportunity. Dafoe tries to lock him down, but Jeff gets some space and goes back to his nasty GnP. Dafoe is stuck, and actually tries to strike with Jeff off his back. Second round also goes to our hero.

Round 3: Jeff eats a head kick, but catches Dafoe in a clinch, knees him in the grill, and unloads with punches. Dafoe swings desperately. He falls to the mat…somehow. (Karma might have to explain that moment, as it’s kind of hard to tell what happened from the video.) Jeff dives on and lands in half-guard. He softens Dafoe up with a knee and easily jumps to mount. He tries for an arm-triangle choke, but can’t quite sink it, so he goes back to his reliable punches and elbows from the top. The last bell rings, and it’s a shutout. CagePotato’s own Jeff “karmaatemycat” Watts wins via decision (scores not announced). Future of the bantamweight division? Absolutely.

    What... a person that post is not just an keyboard warrior? Great job Karma!! The only thing I would have done differently was pulled on the arm in the first round when you had him in the triangle.

    Awesome job, Karma. You did the tater nation proud! Question: Can this really go down as an amateur fight for Karma since he was sponsored with that badass walkout shirt? I'm just saying that those shirts are valuable things around here, and I just don't want to see Karma all Jim Thorpe'd over it.

    When he falls on his back in the third its because I grabbed his leg. he might have been a bit dizzy AT THE TIME from the loss of blood and bombs. THe kid had a lot of heart and a solid chin Rusty did really well. I just did better. Now its back to the gym and more training.

    Notes from the c. I don't often try to picture the posters here since minds eye can't see around all the mountain dew bottles and funion bags but seriously not what I would guess karma to look like. Congrads on dominating without your leather mini skirt and gimp mask. Serious, good job. How the fuck did karma get a shirt? Fucker ain't funny. (Kidding but someones gotta bitch or wouldn't feel nation)
  14. Videodrome_NOW Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 08:58

    Good fight. Only disappointed that the ring announcer did not say Jeff "KarmaAteMyCat" Watts. Better fighter nickname than "Fancy Pants".
  15. skeletor Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 09:00

    Good job Karma! I would have finished him, but trying to live up to my awesomeness can be very frustrating. Keep it up.
  16. KarmaAteMyCat Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 09:03

    if you pay attention I nail my opponent with an elbow and spray the announcer with blood in the third I believe? He gets up and starts trying to wipe it off. Which I can only assume didn't work out for him. Good times.
  17. RwilsonR Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 09:09

    @ Karma - I also liked how you were trying to get in the cage and fight with your CP shirt on, and you weren't going to stop repping the Potato until the ref made you. That is some dedication to the community here! ...And no glove taps for you! I wouldn't have expected any less from the feisty Karma I know on CP. Again, nice work!

  19. aba_k Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 09:10

    Great fight dude! Nearly had him with that triangle! I found what works for me is if I cross my leg as far up my shin as I can, and squeeze my knees together and my heels to my ass.
  20. KarmaAteMyCat Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 09:13

    lemme first and foremost say I appreciate all the best wishes and the article post. Honestly I do. Though I will first tell you that I have much to learn and a very long part of my journey is yet walked. I dont even consider myself good, and my expectations for the future are GREAT so that means I have a lot of work ahead of myself. Thank you potato nation for the love its much enjoyed I shall bask in it while it lasts. Thanks again.

    Good job. It looked like I was watching an early Jon Fitch fight. And I mean that in the best way. And you are every bit as handsome as he is. Way to pound the shit out of that guy. Great fight!

    Nice, Karma's almost famous enough now that if I see him in a bar, I'm gonna wait till I'm drunk enough to walk up to him and sputter insults at him in front of his girl, then if he tries to start with me I'll gouge him in the eye and run, almost. Keep up the good work!

    Damn Karma, didn't you say you weighed like 200 pounds in junior high? That Starbuck's diet is really paying off, amigo. And good shit staying busy with those elbows. Even when you block them they hurt..

Turd Ferguson Says: (in his head) "Rousimar Palhares woulda heel hooked him in the first." KAMC >> Good fight, yo, and way to keep it Nation in there! Your ammy scene is pretty hardcore. Around here, amateurs wear headgear, no elbows are allowed, rounds are 90 seconds and both fighter are swathed in bubble wrap. Respeck!

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 12:32

    Nice job Karma. Im surprised and jealous that they let you guys do knees to the face and elbows in atateur events up in Wisconsin. We can't utilize them in CA till we turn pro. Great dominant win buddy!

  46. Get Off Me Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 01:25

    That's a solid fight Karma. You can't teach heart and a solid chin. Bravo!
  47. danomite Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 01:37

    Good Job. A few words of advice, though, if i may. First, instead of fighting three full rounds you should have just hit him with a hodouken right off the bat and ended it. Secondly, Mandex. Start wearing it. It's an express ticket to the top. All the greats wear mandex: GSP, Fedor, Wand in pride, Shogun, Anderson, Bas, etc...
  48. KarmaAteMyCat Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 02:08

    Thanks everyone! I actually wanted to order a pair of Vale Tudo shorts before the fight but I didn't have the funds. Money makes the world go round I would love to wear the mandex. I promised you guys a video and I followed through I'm glad you guys enjoyed it. I wasn't sure until right before the event started if they were going to allow us to use Knee's and elbows but we train for everything so I brought the game. After cutting weight and eating nothing but great food I can't wait to eat some pizza tonight.

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 04:11

    Congrats Karma! Great fight! I thought the ref should've stopped the fight during the GNP in the 1st. And the 2nd. And the 3rd. Maybe if it was a real ref instead of some dude from Footlocker.
  54. KarmaAteMyCat Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 04:17

    That ref kicked ass he was funny as hell.

  58. coldbeer78 Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 05:04

    The last 10-15 seconds or so of the first round looked like Ralphie beating on Scott Farkas. I was waiting for karmas mom to show up and pull him off the other dude and then hook him up by not telling his dad too much about it at the dinner table. Also, before the fight the camera man says that they didn't say karmas nickname. So what is your nickname, karma ?
  59. KarmaAteMyCat Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 05:13

    Jefferey thekilla Watts Thats also not the camera man thats my training partner. My fiance was recording the fight.

  63. KarmaAteMyCat Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 07:52

    My cardio was fine before the fight, I ate a sub which was my bad because I started having tummy cramps in the third. I was ready to heave I swallowed a mouthful of vomit and continued to fight. I plan on working on the striking and thanks drano.
  64. DARKHORSE06 Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 08:00

  65. fatbellyfrank Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 08:16

    Yeah, I thought it was fucken awesome when Rex stareted doing Bellator, we've since had more comments page contributors actually do articles, J-Dogs fine photography skills and now, WE'VE ACTUALLY GOT A REAL FIGHTER, the Tater Nations fucken rox gentlemen, we are a fucken cool bunch of cats.
  66. fatbellyfrank Says:

    Mon, 02/21/11 - 08:18
