5 Oz. Exclusive: Lyman Good expected to sign six-fight contract with EliteXC

With Elite Xtreme Combat expected to promote four shows between Sept. 20 and Oct. 20, it has had the promotion’s fight team working overtime coming up with potential matchups as well as signing new fighters to contracts in order to fill up the myriad bout slots.

FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned that one new fighter about to sign with the promotion is undefeated welterweight prospect Lyman Good of Team Tiger Schulmann’s in New Jersey.

Officials with Team Tiger Schulmann contacted FiveOuncesOfPain.com to inform us that Good has been offered a six fight contract by EliteXC and is expected to sign it by week’s end.

Good, 7-0, according to Sherdog’s fight finder, is expected to make his debut for the promotion on Sept. 20 at “The Pit” in Albuquerque, N.M. The proposed opponent for his debut is UK Muay Thai specialist Paul “Semtex” Daley. While EliteXC has yet to announce the bout officially, Daley gave strong hints that Good would be his opponent during a recent interview with MMAWeekly.com.

Good, a full-time instructor at several of Tiger Schulmann’s local mixed martial arts academies across the East Coast region, began his professional MMA career competing for Lou Neglia’s Ring of Combat promotion in Atlantic City, N.J.

He earned his first notable victory against Eric Charles during ROC 14 on April 27, 2007. Charles, who was one of 32 fighters invited to Las Vegas to fight for a final spot during the seventh season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” lost via TKO as a result of a doctor’s stoppage at 4:00 of round 1.

Following the Charles fight, Good defeated Doug Gordon via unanimous decision during a Cage Fury Fighting Championship event on June 23, 2007. He then made his debut for a major national promotion taking on Mike Dolce on the undercard of the IFL’s team semifinals last August. Good defeated Dolce, an official cast member of TUF 7, via unanimous decision.

Good’s most recent fight was unanimous decision victory over Alexis Aquino at ROC 18 this past March. He had been scheduled to defend his Ring of Combat welterweight title against John Howard in the main event of ROC 21 on Sept. 12 but Team Tiger Schulmann officials have informed us that he’s been pulled off the card.

A noted striker, Good is also a veteran of Chuck Norris’ World Combat League.

    Hope he is better than the guy that fought at Strikeforce and got worked. Can’t remember his name, but he was the “undefeated Michael Jordan of the WCL”, lol.

    How can Lyman be fighting Paul Daley when he’s a middleweight and Daley is a welter? Unless Lyman is cutting, but from what I’ve seen he is a big guy at 185 so I don’t know if he could make 170. Anyone care to enlighten me. Thanks.

    Lyman Good is a monster and he is also my trainer in MMA. it will not be no KO for paul i promise you that it will be a hell of a fight. lyman is 170 not 180. check out tsk.com it will clear some things up and he can drop weight before the fight.

    Lyman will have no problem getting to 170 he has been there before. As for the question about him being better then the other wcl fighter. Lyman is an mma fighter that went into the wcl because a teamate got hurt in training and then went undeafeted in 3 or 4 wcl fights im not sure. This kid is abad ass!!! I have seen him fight many times, Not that Mike Dolce is a stud but i saw this fight and Lyman dominated. Good Luck Lyman
