————————————————————————————————

The semi-final match-ups in Bellator’s season four welterweight tournament have already been announced. Former champion, Lyman Good meets Olympic judoka Rick Hawn at Bellator 39. The event takes place on April 2nd at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. A lightweight title fight between Eddie Alvarez and Pat Curran serves as the main event of the evening.

Lyman Good was impressive in his return to the cage, since losing his title to Ben Askren in October of last year. He easily out-struck Chris Lozano for three rounds earning the one-sided unanimous decision victory. Good became Bellator’s first 170-pound champion after winning season one’s tournament, defeating Hector Urbina, Jorge Ortiz, and Omar de la Cruz.

Rick Hawn was able to keep his undefeated record intact and more importantly advance in the tournament following his victory over Jim Wallhead on Saturday. The fight mainly took place on the feet even though both fighters have judo backgrounds. Hawn showed much improved boxing skills, which earned him the unanimous decision from the judges. The win was Hawn’s tenth victory in a row and his second under the Bellator banner.

The other semifinal match-up pairs Jay Hieron against Brett Weedman, but will likely take place at a later date due to the facial laceration Weedman suffered in his quarterfinal bout with Dan Hornbuckle.

————————————————————————-

The final quarterfinal match-up in Bellator’s welterweight tournament is set for the televised main card of Bellator 35. The event takes place on March 5th at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, California.

UK fighter, Jim Wallhead was originally supposed to be apart of last year’s tournament, but was unable to fly over to the states due to the volcanic ash cloud in Iceland. He was finally able to make his Bellator debut in October of last year, defeating Ryan Thomas by unanimous decision. The win was Wallhead’s eight-straight, and it earned him a spot in this year’s tourney.

Rick Hawn has been on a tear since making his MMA debut back in January of 2009. He made his Bellator debut last October, crushing LeVon Maynard in the first round with a TKO stoppage. Hawn was apart of the 2004 United States Olympic Judo team in Athens, Greece, finishing ninth in the standings.
