Bellator 62 Results: Lloyd Woodard submits Patricky Freire in upset fashion

Despite the failure of Thiago Santos to make the heavyweight limit for his Bellator 62 headliner against Eric Prindle, the card didn’t lose a lick of entertainment value given the octet of outstanding lightweights competing earlier at this evening’s event in hopes of moving on to the semifinal round of the Season 6 155-pound tournament. Participants included sensational scrapper Patricky Freire, Olympic judoka Rick Hawn, former welterweight stand-out Brent Weedman, and more.

The night was full of finishing performances including that of tournament veteran Lloyd Woodard who bested Freire by way of submission in the early moments of their headliner’s second stanza. While the stoppage itself was unexpected an exciting, the first five minutes of the fight were as gripping as any fight’s in 2012 after the two went back and forth with each absorbing a good deal of damage.

Joining Woodard in the final four from Season 6 were Hawn, Weedman, and Thiago Michel who himself pulled off a mild upset by beating Rene Nazare. Hawn and Weedman both looked sharp in their lightweight debuts, ending their opponents’ evenings via submission and knockout respectively.

The next round’s match-ups will take place at Bellator 66 on April 20 and will feature Michel-Weedman and Hawn-Woodard.

    awesome night of fights
    Thiago Michel is agreat addition to BFC, great kickboxer, so accurate. handled himself ok on the ground too.
    Weedman/Ambrose was fun though way over matched, Brent looked good at 155. Never seen a fighter bait another by putting himself into a D’arce choke so he could flip over and reverse into side control, thats some confidence
    Nice KO by Rick Hawn, still not overly impressed by him but again looks good at lw
    Woodard/Pitbull was awesome, worth watching if you have 8 minutes to spare. Lloyd a crazy mufuh, great head control for the kimura, you dont get out of those. looked like a break on pitbulls arm too.
    also worth watching if anyone has time was Martinez vs Frey. Frey fought like a gay Dominic Cruz. i wasnt sure if he was cocky, unorthodox, or shit. turned out he was shit. if people thought Condit was running from Diaz watch this guy. new rule please, running in cage should be illegal. which ever athletic commision gave this guy a license to fight needs replacing. it was like watching your retarded brother get his arse kicked

    also i was pleased and surpirsed to hear Bjron Rebney say he was going to support Thiago Santos. He understands Santos is a huge young prospect, and instead of vilifying him and straight cutting him they are gonna work with him and get him a nutritionist and get him in shape. fucking awesome news, the guy could be a top 10 hw one day
