David Rickels advanced to the semifinals of a Bellator tournament for the second time in a row with his unanimous decision win over Lloyd Woodard at Bellator 87. He’s now won six of his seven fights inside Bellator, including a welterweight tournament win over Jordan Smith last year.
With Alexander Sarnavskiy out with a broken hand, Jason Fischer gets the biggest opportunity of his career to date, a semifinal birth into this year’s lightweight tournament. Fischer is 3-1 under the Bellator banner, with his only defeat being a hard fought unanimous decision loss to David Rickels.
