Martinez mopped up Frey.

Round 1
Frey emerges in a low stance, keeping his distance from Martinez and throwing some slapping low kicks. Martinez spends the first half of the frame just trying to chase down Frey, who dashes away. Martinez finally backs his man into the cage with two minutes to go and uncorks a nice right hand which sends Frey into a full sprint. Frey goes to the body with a kick and Martinez wobbles him with a hard left hook. Frey stays up, then goes down from the next left. Martinez postures up in the half-guard of the dazed Frey and blasts him with punches until ref Kerry Hatley intervenes. At 4:08 of the opening round, it’s a TKO win for Rad Martinez in his featherweight debut.
Round 1
Jansen pushes forward on Kirwan right away, but Kirwan reverses the momentum with a shot. Kirwan slaps on a guillotine choke and Jansen scrambles until he can pop his head loose and stand back up. They tie up in the center of the cage and trade uppercuts and knees on the inside. Kirwan scores with a strong knee up the middle that has Jansen breaking away. Kirwan shoots again and this time it’s Jansen looking for a guillotine. Kirwan escapes and stays on top, trying to control the legs as Jansen works to stand using the fence. Kirwan has a body lock and Jansen slams a few hard right hands to his body as he gets to his feet. Jansen turns the corner and nearly takes Kirwan’s back before Kirwan hits a switch. Jansen goes around the back again and drops right hands to the face of the kneeling Kirwan. With 80 seconds left, Jansen goes back to the front for another choke attempt and Kirwan uses the opportunity to put Jansen on his back.

The rangy Michele scores with a few knees of his own before the lightweights are split up by ref Jacob Montalvo. Nazare is momentarily backed up with a push kick before rushing back in and resuming his takedown try on the fence. This time, Nazare is finding even less success and breaks off after absorbing a few knees. Michele is hunting for teep and spinning kicks, none landing clean but certainly giving Nazare something to think about. Nazare shoots again and finally gets his takedown after a brief struggle on the fence. Not a lot of action from Nazare on top as he tries to navigate the long, closed guard of his countryman. With a few seconds to go, Nazare postures up and drops a couple left hands.

Flue with his victory.

Round 2

Bellator Season 6 Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinal
Rick Hawn vs. Ricardo Tirloni

A. Hemingway

Hawn's right hand ripped Tirloni.

Round 1
Tirloni lunges in with a flying knee, misses and tries to tie up, but the lightweights quickly split. Hawn presses out from the center, flicking out short punches while Tirloni keeps busy with kicks to the legs and body. Hawn comes inside to clinch and they jockey for position along the fence, Tirloni landing some solid knees before they break. Hawn scores his first solid offense of the bout 90 seconds in with a right hook. Charging forward again, Hawn pins Tirloni on the cage but can’t keep him there long, as Tirloni attacks with knees from the plum. Hawn steps in with a massive right hand that lands behind Tirloni’s ear and sends the Brazilian crashing to the mat. Hawn thumps his dazed foe with hammerfists from guard until Tirloni’s lights go out. Referee Kerry Hatley steps in to save the unconscious Tirloni, who comes to his senses seconds later, nearly upkicks Hatley and then protests the stoppage. Rick Hawn scores a brutal knockout at 2:36 of the opening round in his lightweight debut.
Round 1

The Brazilian recovers after a minute and a wild scramble ensues with Woodard landing a clipping punch, followed by a big takedown from Freire. They scramble back to their feet and Woodard catches Pitbull going back with a hard left straight. “Cupcake” goes down to Freire’s guard, lifts him up and carries him over to the fence. Pitbull uses the cage to post and reverse, but Woodard is only on his back a few seconds before he stands on the fence. Pitbull scores another takedown on the fence and hops into full mount. Woodard escapes out the back door and moves to top position in Freire’s closed guard. The American stands up and breaks the posture, but can’t generate a lot of offense from the top. Pitbull scrambles to his feet and blitzes Woodard with big punches, staggering him with a wide left. Freire tries to give chase and follow up but Woodard regains his footing and replies with a knee before being taken down. From half-guard on Woodard’s right side, Freire frames up a kimura on the left arm with less than half a minute to go. He keeps working for it to the bell.

Woodard put a wrench in
Freire's Season 6 plans.

Round 2

Pitbull charges in again and another woolly exchange ensues, Woodard connecting with a big knee and Pitbull with another big left hand in the melee.

Freire seems dazed as he rolls and winds up underneath Woodard, who lands left hammerfists to his opponent’s unprotected face. Freire throws his legs up for an armbar, which Woodard denies and moves to side control on Pitbull’s left. Woodard goes to the farside for a kimura on Freire’s left arm. He has Freire’s head trapped between his legs as he rolls him over, still wrenching the kimura. Woodard cranks until Freire’s arm gives and the Brazilian is finally forced to tap out. At 1:46 of round two, Lloyd Woodard becomes the fourth and final Bellator Season 6 lightweight tournament semifinalist.

The taller Peterson got the
short end of a split decision.

Round 1

Jones pauses the action a few times to adjust his cup, though he didn’t appear to be kicked in it. Jones catches another kick and shoves Peterson down, but again does not give chase. Peterson is beginning to stick his jab, especially over the top when Jones kicks low. Jones denies a shot from Peterson but gets hustled into the fence , where he sprawls before his cup falls out of his shorts. Ref Jacob Montalvo allows Jones to try and fix the cup, but warns that he will stop the fight if it falls out again.

Peterson’s legs buckle but he doesn’t go down, and the follow-up offense from Jones doesn’t land clean. Peterson is recovered now and he connects with a spinning back-fist. Jones eats it and keeps coming forward, putting a solid three-punch combo on Peterson.

Jones is doing well to stay away from Peterson’s strikes, then decides to come inside and winds up with Peterson pulling rubber guard. Jones gets up Peterson charges forward and hits a double-leg, then socks away with left hands as he catches a kneeling Jones trying to stand.

Vega vanquished Luque.

Round 1
Vega staggers Luque with a right hand but the hometown fighter stays on his feet and recovers quickly. They tie up and Vega holds Luque on the fence before lifting him into the air and slamming him onto his back. Vega works from side control on Luque’s left side and traps Luque’s left arm between his legs. Luque extracts the limb, but he’s not out of danger, as Vega is cranking a kimura on his right arm. Luque bucks and gets loose of the hold, giving up full mount at the same time. Luque turns over and Vega flattens him out, then begins blasting away with vicious right hands. Vega stays heavy on top as Luque twists and turns, and he’s got an arm-triangle choke waiting once Luque gets his back on the mat. Luque resists for a few seconds but is forced to capitulate at 3:43 of the opening round.
