One of the last remaining Bellator originals, Lyman Good has been very vocal in the past about how important it is for him to earn a second shot at beating Ben Askren to recapture the feel of a divisional title around his waist. Good became the promotionâ€™s first welterweight champion after winning a Season 1 tournament but lost the belt a year later to the still-undefeated Askren.
Goodâ€™s journey back to a title-fight started last night at Bellator 74 when he was able to defeat opponent Jim Wallhead by way of decision in the quarterfinal round of the companyâ€™s latest welterweight tourney. â€œCyborgâ€ looked sharp throughout, picking Wallhead apart with jabs and doing damage in the clinch. He improved his record to 13-2 with the win.
