Askren vs. Good set for Bellator 33 in Philadelphia


After some indecision as to where it would be held, the main event for Bellator 33 in has finally been set  instone. Bellator welterweight champ Lyman Good will defend his title against challenger Ben Askren on October 21st at the Liacouras Center at Temple University in Center City Philadelphia. Lyman, having not fought in over a year due to injury, is itching to fight and although he can't do so in his hometown of New York City, he can give his neighbors, the citizens of Philly a great show.

“I can’t fight in my backyard, but I can fight in my neighbor’s backyard. Eddie is my neighbor and it is an honor to fight on the same card as him, especially in Philly. It will be huge! Plus it’s just a 2 hour drive from New York.”, says Good about the upcoming fight.

Normally I would think that he would have the ring rust but I know how long out he started training hardcore for this fight. None of Pellegrino's wrestlers can take Lyman down and if they do he pops back up. I can't wait to see how Ben does with the takedowns. This fight PLUS Eddie & Roger. This card will be epic.

LMAO at Lyman being scared! I can't wait for this fight. I have never seen him so pumped. He told me yesterday he wished the fight was tomorrow.
