      These guys traded some punches, they clinched, Saunders unloaded with a series of knees to the body from the clinch, Good was unloading with uppercuts inside the clinch, and after a few seconds of trading strikes in the clinch, Saunders randomly fell down, and Good knocked him out with some punches on the ground. That was a fantastic first round finish by Lyman Good, and another disappointing knockout loss for Ben Saunders.

      Good started this fight with a body kick, Santos caught it, took him down, Good stood back up, and Santos clinched with his back, pressed him against the fence, went for a single leg takedown, that didn't work, so they just clinched for a few seconds. Santos almost tripped Good one minute into the round, but Good was able to stay on his feet, so they split up and reset. They traded a few punches with Good landing the better strikes, but Santos dropped him with a leg kick 90 seconds into the round, and then let him stand back up. Santos continued to land some hard kicks to the lead leg of Good, and then Good finally caught one and took down Santos halfway through the round. Good pressed Santos against the fence, and Santos used that to stand up and reset. Santos went back to chewing up Good's lead leg, they traded some punches from the clinch, and Santos continued to throw some wild combinations at him. Good rocked Santos with 30 seconds left in the round, but he seemed to recover quickly, and he fired back with some strikes of his own. That was a close back & forth round, with Santos doing more damage with his leg kicks, and Good doing more damage with his punchces. I don't know who won that round to be honest.
     They both traded some big punches to start the second round, with Santos appearing to be slightly more active with his combinations, and he almost took Good down against the fence, but Good was able to slip out and reset. Santos shot for another takedown with 2 minutes left in the round, but that failed, so they went back to trading punches. Good was landing the cleaner punches, but Santos looked like he was throwing more frequently and more violently. Santos rocked Good with a spinning backfist, they traded some strikes from the clinch, and then split up to work some more back & forth boxing. Santos threw a flying knee, Good "ate it like a cookie" according to Dominick Cruz, and then Good fired back with some big punch combinations. Santos caught a kick and tripped Good to finish the round. I still have no idea where the scorecards are at, but I have this fight all tied up going into the final round.
     They continued to trade some pretty wild strikes in the third round, with Good moving forward more, but Santos was chewing him up with big punches, that rocked Good's head back multiple times. This was a really close fight, it could have been anybody's game going into the final minute of the fight, and in the final 10 seconds, Santos unloaded on Good, rocked the shit out of him, Good did the chicken dance for a few seconds, and he was saved by the buzzer. I'm scoring this fight 29-28 for Santos, but wouldn't be shocked with the New York judges going with their hometown boy, Lyman Good. The judges ended up giving the win to Santos via split-decision, which is a LITTLE bit crazy, considering the two judges that gave him the fight gave him all 3 rounds. I thought it was a LITTLE closer than that, but congrats to Santos for a solid split-decision victory over a tough opponent who hasn't fought in a couple of years.

     This was a pretty decent UFC debut for Lyman Good. He beat up Craig in the first round from the distance, but they both had some pretty clear Octagon jitters, so it seemed like neither fighter really wanted to let loose at all. Craig landed some nice elbows from the clinch in the second round, and it looked like he was controlling the round, until he slipped, and fell down, and from there, he was sort of thrown off his game. He got back up, and threw an elbow, Good threw a perfect counter punch, knocking Craig to the ground, and then Good jumped on him, and punched him in the face until Craig eventually went out. Nice finish for Lyman Good.

      Stephens took Good down almost immediately in the first round and beat up Good on the ground for the duration of the round. They traded some strikes in the second round, and then Stephens took Good down again with ease, and continued to beat him up for the rest of the second round. That's 10 minutes going to Ian Stephens, for the unanimous decision victory after two rounds.

      The entire first round took place in the clinch, with Good in control, as he worked some dirty boxing to pick apart Rivera against the fence. The second round was the exact same story, with Good pressing Rivera against the fence in the clinch, while he worked some more dirty boxing. Good took Rivera to the ground to finish the round. I have Good ahead 2-0 going into the final round. The final round was the same thing, with Good working his dirty boxing against the fence. Lyman Good wins 30-27 pretty much across the board for the unanimous decision victory.

      Koreshkov pretty much beat the shit out of Good in the first round, with his excellent boxing. The second round had Good looking for a rear-naked choke, but Koreshkov got back to his feet, where he was able to continue to beat up Good for the rest of the round. So even though Good had his back for part of the round, I still gave the first two rounds to Koreshkov. Koreshkov continued to beat Good's ass for the third round, and then he secured a takedown about halfway through the round, which was pretty interesting, considering he was dominating Good on the feet. Once they hit the ground, Good landed some decent elbows, but Koreshkov beat his ass on the ground as well. Really nice unanimous decision victory for Koreshkov, against a tough opponent in Lyman Good.

      Good immediately shot in for a takedown, and pinned Tsarev in the center of the cage. From there, he beat him up with some knees to the body, and some short punches from inside his guard. Good started to open up with some more aggressive punches in the last half of the round. Round one clearly goes to Good for his ground & pound. The second round had both fighters trading some heavy punches & kicks, with Good moving forward more often than not. Good took the fight back to the ground halfway through the second round, landing in side control. He let Tsarev stand back up, Tsarev rushed him, Good avoided all the damage, he blasted Tsarev in the face with a few punches, Tsarev complained about an eye poke, the referee basically ignored it, so he let Good attack Tsarev with a barrage of punches, finishing the fight via TKO near the end of the second round. Really strong performance by Lyman Good.

      The first round had a lot of dirty boxing, with Good landing a lot of uppercuts from the clinch. Wallhead landed some decent knees from the clinch, but for the most part, Good was able to outstrike him for the duration of the round, while controlling him from the clinch. The second round was more of the same, with Good controlling Wallhead with his striking, while both guys were trading at a moderate pace, but I have Good ahead, 2-0, going into the final round. Good landed a groin shot early in the third round. Once the fight started back up, it continued the same as the rest of the fight, with a lot of dirty boxing, and another round in the books for Lyman Good. Good landed a final knee to the groin with 3 seconds left in the round, so...? The referee took a point away from Good. Once the fight started back up, they high fived, and the bell sounded. I scored this fight 29-27 for Good, and all 3 judges agreed.

      These guys met in the center of the cage, and then Good chopped his way right through Maynard with a series of punches that put him on the ground. He continued to plow through him, running him over like a lawnmower, and he never stopped punching until the referee stopped the fight. Nice quick KO finish for Lyman Good, in just 13 seconds of the opening round.

      The first round consisted of both guys clinching against the cage for 4+ minutes. Hawn controlled most of the clinch, but when they broke apart in the final minute, Good was able to land a few decent strikes, which probably won the first round for Good. Hawn took Good down early in the second round, and held him down for the entire round, beating him up with some short punches, but not really doing a ton of damage. The final round had both guys striking with each other, and it was a somewhat even battle, with Hawn taking Good down with 10 seconds left in the round. I personally scored this fight a draw, and I hate draws, so I'm glad that the judges decided this one for me. Congrats to Rick Hawn for the split-decision victory.

      This fight mostly took place standing, with both guys trading, similar to the Hawn vs. Wallhead fight earlier in the night, but not quite as action packed. Still, Lyman Good maintained pretty solid control for most of the round, holding the center of the cage, landing a few more strikes, and taking down Lozano a couple of times just to cap off rounds to make sure he secured them on the scorecards. Lozano had a nice moment in the third round, where he threw Good to the ground, and locked on a guillotine choke, but Good popped out of it, stood back up, and continued to beat up Lozano. Meanwhile, Lozano's left eye was almost completely swollen shut. I scored this fight 30-27 for Good, and the judges agreed for the most part, giving Good the unanimous decision victory.

      Askren of course, took the fight to the ground immediately in the opening round of this title fight. Good flipped him over halfway through the round, Askren went for an armbar, and then a leg lock, and they stood back up. Askren then threw Good to the ground, and tried to mount him again. Askren won that first round with his wreslting, which most people probably expected at this point.
     Askren took Good down a couple of times in the second round, mounted him, and beat him up on the ground. Askren started the third round by immediately taking Good to the ground, and mounting him again. Askren clearly has no interest in standing up, as he started the fourth round with another takedown attempt. Good held him off for a few seconds, but eventually, Askren was back in position to fully mount Good, beating him up again with another round of ground & pound. The referee got bored and stood them up halfway through the round. Askren tried for a few more takedowns, failing repeatedly, but eventually he completed one with a minute left in the round.
     The final round was the same story, with Askren shooting for takedowns, and dominating Good with his wrestling. Askren is an outstanding wrestler, maybe one of the best in the sport, but he's boring as fuck to watch. He milks the "Lay & Pray" style for all it's worth, and in this case, that style won him a Bellator Welterweight Championship. Congrats to Askren for another decision victory against a tough opponent.

      Cruz clinched early, and Good powered forward until Cruz fell to the ground, with Good landing inside his guard. Good pushed him up against the cage, hit him with some short punches, eventually postured up, and then brutally started beating Cruz with massive right hands, until the referee was forced to step in and stop the fight. Awesome display of power by Lyman Good, the first ever Bellator Welterweight Champion.

      For the most part, Good beat the shit out of Ortiz in the first round, with solid punch combinations and a few hard kicks. Ortiz stood toe to toe with him, but he wasn't delivering nearly as much as he was absorbing. They traded some strikes to start the second round, Ortiz threw a leg kick, Good caught it, and took him to the ground, landing in side control. From there, Ortiz just hugged him, holding on for dear life. The referee eventually stood them back up, and Good slaughtered Ortiz on the feet with some punches, cutting him open, and taking him to the ground. Ortiz was bleeding pretty badly, so the referee had the doctor check him out, and the doctor stopped the fight. Solid one-sided victory for Lyman Good.

Technical Submission (Rear-Naked Choke)

      Urbina started the fight by shooting for a takedown, but Good stopped him with a front headlock, leading to the clinch, with Good in control against the cage. They clinched for a minute or so, before Good threw a knee to Urbina's groin. They started the fight back up, and Urbina rushed in throwing bombs, and ended up in the clinch again, with Good still in control. Good blasted Urbina in the face with some hard punches from inside the clinch, as they continued to lock up like two bulls. They eventually went to the ground, with Good on top in half mount, where he landed some short punches to Urbina's face. The first round pretty clearly goes to Good.
      The second round started, and Good blasted Urbina with a head kick, and then continued to pick him apart on the feet. Urbina landed a few decent shots, but Good was clearly outboxing him. Good got the clinch, and took Urbina back down around the one minute mark of the second round. After beating up Urbina for half of the round, Urbina finally went into a violent scramble, which allowed him to secure full mount for a few seconds, but Good flipped him back over again before Urbina could do any real damage. Good grabbed his back, locked on a rear-naked choke, and put Urbina to sleep. Solid victory for Lyman Good in his Bellator debut.

      This fight was a pretty decent brawl, with Good beating up Dolce for most of the fight, and he even secured a takedown at one point, pretty much beating Dolce at every aspect of the game. Pretty exciting fight for the most part, but yeah, this one goes to Lyman Good, probably all 3 rounds.
