Lyman Good (13-2) suffered his second lost of his career to Rick Hawn at Bellator 39 back in April of 2011. Good then took time to rediscover himself and the skills he possesses that once earned him the Bellator Welterweight title. Throughout all of this, Good never forgot his first career lost to current champion Ben Askren. Lyman lost his title to Askren after that fight, something Good have never felt before.
Back in April of this year Good knocked out LeVon Maynard in his first fight back. Good made an obvious statement that he meant business and earned a shot in the season seven welterweight tournament. Tonight in the Bellator 74 main event, Good had his first fight of this new tournament. He took on the tough British fighter Jim Wallhead. Good looked spot on, always at a good distance, landed great strikes, and also punished the body of Wallhead. Good won by unanimous decision, earning a spot in the next round. When asked about training and how much time he needs to rest for his next fight, Good simply answered “Thee are no breaks for now.” He also added that he had his breaks when he took a year off and now is just focused one fight at a time.
Although Good would love a shot at Askren, he know that he is in a tough tournament. Good said that he can not overlook these talented competitors, it is just one fight at a time at this point. Good said ” I am on a mission, to get back what was once mine.” Good is determined and sure looked spectacular tonight.
Also on the card was Marius Zaromskis who looked great against top MMA prospect Nordine Taleb (8-2). Marius scored the takedowns, and landed solid strikes. Bellator President Bjorn Rebney said that this fight reminded him of the old Zaromskis. Zaromskis said the one thing he didn’t expect from Taleb was the hard leg kicks. Besides that, the fight was all Zaromskis.
