Good vs. Lozano Wiki Update Wiki
In the final televised bout of Bellator 35, former organizational welterweight champion Lyman Good took on Chris Lozano. Good, coming in off of a title fight loss to Ben Askren, was 3-1 overall in previous Bellator fights. The undefeated Lozano was 1-0 in Bellator competition.
Good attacked first with a low kick. Lozano countered whenever Good came forward with a flurry. Good landed several times with his left hand jab and then an uppercut that Lozano countered with the right hand. Lozano connected on a low kick with less than a minute remaining. A nice right hand landed from Good, perhaps the best punch of the round.
The fighters clinched early in round two and exchanged in close. A big right punch to the body landed from Lozano yet Good came back with a punch that staggered Lozano. Lozano's mouthpiece went flying as Good pushed him up against the fence. Lozano squinted heavily due to an apparent eye injury, which appeared to affect him throughout the remainder of the round. A big takedown from Good at the end of the round likely sealed the round in his favor.
Lozano swung for the fences to begin round three and managed to put Good on the ground. Lozano worked on an arm-in guillotine that Good easily escaped from and the fighters jumped back to their feet. Good kept the pace high and landed a solid uppercut as Lozano was down on his knees working for a takedown. Lozano rolled for a submission with a minute remaining, but Good was unimpressed, taking Lozano's back and threatening with a rear naked choke and ground and pound as the round ended.
The judges scored the bout 29-28, 30-27, and 30-27 for the winner by unanimous decision, Lyman Good. Speaking with Jimmy Smith in the post-fight interview, Good commented, "This is me redeeming myself from my loss, so I felt like I had a lot to prove... I'm the type of fighter where the longer I take you into deeper territory my best assets come to the surface... I hope this loss doesn't take anything away from him as a fighter, he's a great fighter."
