    Former UFC middleweight Gerald Harris came up short in his first outing since being released by the promotion, as the “Hurricane” dropped a unanimous decision to lesser-known James Head on Friday. The bout was the main event of Xtreme Fight Night 2 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa, Okla.

    A pupil of Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Rafael Lovato, Jr., Head reportedly used both effective guard work and kickboxing to earn scores of 29-28 and 30-27 (twice), upping his professional record to 7-1.

    Harris, a Tulsa native, was suddenly and surprisingly dismissed by Zuffa last November following a lackluster decision loss to Maiquel Jose Falcao Goncalves at UFC 123. Prior to that defeat, the 31-year-old had won 10 straight fights and earned “Knockout of the Night” bonuses in two of his three Octagon appearances.
