Bellator 62 saw a great main event between Lloyd Woodard and Patricky Freire. The two men engaged in a fantastic back and forth bout that ended when Woodard was able to catch the arm of “Pitbull” in a kimura and, after briefly losing the hold, crank it hard enough to injure Freire’s arm.
Bellator released the full fight on YouTube and it’s worth a watch as it was a great fight:
Round 2: Intensity all the way up! Woodard opens aggressively, but misses with a hopping kick. Freire fires back a bit, but nothing significant. Freire looking to land lunging left hooks as he drives forwards, but all miss. Woodard clinches and then gets into punching range. Both guys are firing heavy, yet Pitbull is landing better. Woodard lands a big knee and Pitbull saves himself by getting a single leg attempt. Woodard fights it off and is on top of Freire’s open guard. Woodard scrambles into side control and seizes the kimura! Patricky seems confused and goes the wrong way! Woodard gets head control with his legs and flips Patricky. Is this another Mir/Nog?!?! Patricky taps! Referee steps in. Replay shows that Woodard broke Patricky’s arm! Mini Mir/Nog! Woodard, submission, Round 2.
Pitbull did get on Twitter last night to confirm that his arm was fractured by the kimura and also included a photo of him in the hospital. Those can be seen after the jump.
Here’s the tweet from Pitbull:
