Bellator adds undefeated Lloyd Woodard to Season 4 Tournament
Bellator Fighting Cchampionships recently confirmed the addition of undefeated submission specialist Lloyd “Cupcake” Woodard to the upcoming Season 4 Tournament which airs LIVE on MTV2 starting in March.
Woodard has a 10-0 professional mixed martial arts record, including six first round finishes.
“I’m ready to go out there and do what I love to do, which is fight hard and fight the best guys that are out there,” said Woodard. “I’m a really big fan of Eddie Alvarez and I would love to fight him. That would be a real step up. It would be like fighting my idol, so I plan on winning this tournament so I can fight him.”
With his sights set on Alvarez and his Bellator World Championship belt, Woodard knows he can’t look too far ahead.
“It doesn’t matter who I fight in the first round of this tournament,” Woodard said. “I’m pretty sure they’re going to be a really tough fighter, so that’s what I’m preparing for. I just can’t wait to get in that cage and show people what I can do. Every time I fight, more and more people are able to see me in exciting fights. The more I fight, the more people will see me, and the longer I’ll be able to compete in this sport.”
Woodard joins “Razor” Rob McCullough, Carey Vanier, and Michael Chandler as confirmed participants in the upcoming Lightweight Tournament.
