Bellator 62 featured so much action last night (March 23, 2012) that the promotion couldn't decide on which moment from the terrific season six lightweight (155 pounds) tournament to highlight. First, it released Rick Hawn's fantastic knockout of Ricardo Tirloni, then a highlight package of the entire main card which included Brent Weedman's Von Flue choke finish of J.J. Ambrose.
But the moment people were raving about afterwards was the main event, an absolute thriller between Bellator season four finalist Patricky "Pitbull" Freire and semifinalist Lloyd Woodard, who both dropped decisions to current champion Michael Chandler.
Woodard was a huge underdog heading into the fight but he channeled the Rocky spirit en route to an incredible upset victory. While sloppy at times, the finish was reminiscent of Frank Mir's Kimura submission against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira late last year although a bit less brutal. The fight was so good that Bellator put the whole thing up on YouTube in glorious HD.
