Good faces Costa in Bellator welter qualifier

By Franklin McNeil

Lyman Good returns to action Nov. 26 against Michael Costa in a Bellator Season 6 welterweight tournament qualifier at Caesars Atlantic City, N.J.

The fight will be Good’s first bout since April 2, when he suffered a split-decision loss to Rick Hawn. Good (11-2) has lost two of his three most recent bouts and is eager to regain his winning touch.

“Coming off of that last fight, it really made me go back to the drawing board and start fresh,” Good said. “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.”

Costa will make his Bellator debut against Good. He will enter the cage with a pro mark of 10-5-1.

Good-Costa is part of the Bellator 59 card that includes a lightweight tilt between Kurt Pellegrino and Patricky Freire.
