Tiger Schulmann's Mixed Martial Arts -- Competition
March 7 live on HDNet from the Tropicana in Atlantic City
Rising young MMA star Lyman Good (6-0) will take on his toughest opponent to date in Alexis Aquino (5-1) of Rhino Fight Team in a middleweight bout. The 22-year old native New Yorker rolls confidently into his featured fight with a perfect 6-0 record. In his last appearance at ROC's 'Tournament of Champions' finals on April 27 2007, Good pummeled The Bomb Squad's Erik Charles and earned a victory via an injury stoppage. Remarkably conditioned and poised for such a young fighter, Good has already established an intimidating reputation for himself. "The Cyborg" is looking to leave another MMA opponent in his wake at ROC XVIII in his much anticipated return to the ring!
RING OF COMBAT XVIII - MARCH 7, 2008
GOOD REMAINS UNDEFEATED!
The build up for Lyman Good versus Alexis Aquino started two years ago when Good's teammate and close friend Nissim Levy fought Aquino. It was on the same exact stage at Atlantic City's Tropicana Casino and Resort that Aquino paraded through the cage taunting Levy. The two then threw bombs at each other for three rounds with Aquino winning a hard fought decision. The fight hasn't sat well with Levy who has been out of training for the last six months caring for his father Shlomo, who recently passed away after a long battle with cancer. When the opportunity to fight Aquino arose, it was too much for Good to pass up. A chance to further his burgeoning MMA career against a tough 5-1 opponent, combined with the opportunity to settle a score for his friend.
Sporting a 6-0 record, Good stepped into the Ring of Combat at an always lean 185 pounds. Sporting the lines of a body builder, it is Lyman's toughness of mind that has bought him his undefeated record, not his impressive physique.
Aquino would show more class this time around, touching gloves before the fight. But the first round would be dominated by Good, who nearly ended things with an opening head kick. He would show composed standup throughout the round, landing numerous combinations and bloodying up Aquino in several places. He would apply surgical striking with solid movement to avoid the overhand rights and spinning backs that Aquino would throw throughout the round.
Aquino would show the heart that earned him a 5-1 record in the second round, stalking Good around the ring from start to finish. Lyman was tough in the clinch and avoided most of Aquino's strikes, but Aquino's defense was solid as well and he earned a hard fought takedown. Good would threaten Aquino with a tight high guard, but the round ended evenly with Aquino having the one takedown.
There was little left in the tank for Aquino in the third though. The best he could do was withstand barrage after barrage of punches from Good, who dominated the third round from start to finish. He won every second of the round moving calmly away from Aquino's strikes and landing back with regularity. He would leave impressed with Aquino's toughness, but leaving his opponent with numerous marks on his face. It was his most impressive opponent to date, and Lyman's toughest win.
Good would score a unanimous 29-28 decision on all three scorecards.
