With Season 7 of Bellator Fighting Championships just around the corner, it feels appropriate to look back at the best of the best of 2012 so far. As far as back and forth fights in Bellator go, Michael Chandler and Eddie Alvarez's four-round epic is the gold standard to live up to. In terms of sheer output, Patricky "Pitbull" Freire and Lloyd Woodard may have matched Alvarez/Chandler in half the time.

Both exchanged an intense stare down at weigh-in, and come fight night "Pitbull" and "Cupcake" didn't disappoint. A frenetic pace was set from the ontset, the only lull in the action being a low blow 20 seconds in. The pair fought as if there was a five-minute time limit, trading bombs, dropping one another, and exchanging ground and pound throughout the first round.

The pace didn't slow a bit in the second, which saw each fighter slinging huge punches until Woodard rocked Freire with a knee. "Cupcake" was able to get side control and lock up a kimura, before briefly losing it, rolling, regaining his grip and forcing the tap. While the finish came 1:46 into round two, the fight had enough action to fill a full three.

Heading into Season 7, Woodard is set to corner fellow Montana native and teammate Tim Welch in the welterweight tournament. Freire meanwhile looks to get back on track against former champ Alvarez. The last time "Pitbull" was defeated in Bellator, he responded with a first-round knockout. "Pitbull" vs. Alvarez is set for Bellator 76 on October 12.
