Bellator Fighting Championships returned for round three on Spike TV last night (Jan. 31, 2013) with the season eight lightweight tournament which featured just about everything on a very entertaining main card.

The main event of the evening was a battle between tournament quarterfinalists Lloyd Woodard and David Rickels and it was a wild back-and-forth affair.

The co-main event featured hotshot prospect Will Brooks against top Brazilian Ricardo Tirloni. Brooks looked sharp throughout the bout and, although raw, he was able to physically dominate the veteran of two tournaments with his wrestling.

David Rickels vs Lloyd Woodard:

Round 3: “Caveman” goes back on the attack with low kicks on the fatigued Woodard. Rickels presses forward, making Woodard fight off of his back foot while landing kicks to the body. Woodard is starting to look ginger on his right leg. He then walks right into a powerful one-two from Rickels that stands him up. Rickels is bouncing on his feet, looking noticeably fresher than Woodard.

Overhand right by Rickels, then an outside low kick stumbles Woodard. Woodard rips him with a left hook in retaliation, but “Caveman” goes back to the leg kicks. Two push kicks from Rickels, then an inside leg kick. Woodard wades forward and eats two counter hooks from Rickes. Left hooks landing for Rickels now, bashing Woodard to the chin and to the body.

Hooks and uppercuts follow for Rickels. Woodard has been getting tagged repeatedly and he knows he's behind. Woodard rushes in for a desperate takedown and Rickels locks up a guillotine. Woodard escapes it quickly, but Rickels throws up a triangle attempt which controls him until the closing seconds.
