Lyman Good vs Michael Costa at Bellator 59


Bellator Fighting Championships on Tuesday announced that former Bellator welterweight champion Lyman Good will make his long-awaited return to the Bellator cage as the New York native squares off against promising Brazilian Michael Costa in a Bellator Season 6 Welterweight Tournament Qualifier fight on Nov. 26 from Caesars Atlantic City in New Jersey and live on MTV2 and in commercial-free HD on EPIX2 beginning at 9 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. CT.

The night will also feature the Bellator Season 5 Bantamweight final between Alexis Vila and Eduardo Dantas as well as two other feature fights that include Kurt Pellegrino taking on Patricky Pitbull Freire and Phillipe Nover against Marcin Held.

Born in Harlem and currently fighting out of Manhattan, the explosive Good brings an impressive 11-2 professional record to the cage, including five knockout victories. The Tiger Schulmann product marched through the Season 1 Welterweight Tournament and captured the title to become the first ever Bellator welterweight champion.

Good was originally supposed to get back into the cage earlier this year against fellow welterweight Dan Hornbuckle, but a nagging hamstring injury forced him out of the fight. The New Yorker has been on a long layoff since coming off a tough split-decision loss at the hands of undefeated Judo Olympian Rick Hawn in the Bellator Season 4 Welterweight Tournament Semifinals and is eager to get back to work.

“Coming off of that last fight, it really made me go back to the drawing board and start fresh,” said Good. “You’re going to see a new Lyman Good, but at the same time it’s going to be the old Lyman Good. I felt like I got away from some things that made me who I was as a fighter, and I needed to get back to my roots. I can’t wait to get into that cage, trade some leather and get back to my winning ways.”

For Costa, the Royler Gracie trained black belt has been waiting to make his Bellator debut, and will have his hands full with the veteran Good. Costa currently trains and teaches alongside current Bellator Middleweight Tournament Finalist Vitor Vianna at Wand Fight Team in Las Vegas, and a meeting with Good should produce fireworks.

“Lyman was our first ever welterweight champion and it’s going to be good to see him back in the cage and fighting for a shot in our next tournament,” said Bellator Chairman & CEO Bjorn Rebney. “Lyman always brings it, and Michael is the real deal with great skills, so this should be a very explosive fight.”
