Lloyd “Cupcake” Woodard becomes the second competitor to advance to the semifinals of the Bellator lightweight tournament with a technical knockout of Carey Vanier. After a very first close round, Woodard landed a short left early in the second round that dropped Vanier. Woodard immediately attacked the grounded foe and looked for a kimura but Vanier escaped. The relentless Woodard connects with a knee that sent Vanier back to the mat where “Cupcake” blasts him with right hands until the referee stops it.
