Karl Amoussou wanted to make a statement and did just that in the opening-round of Bellator's season-six welterweight tournament.

The Frenchman sliced through season-five tournament vet Chris Lozano, cinching a first-round submission to advance to the semifinals.

Amoussou joined Bryan Baker, David Rickels and Ben Saunders in the winner's circle on Friday at Bellator 62, which took place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and aired live on MTV2.

Amoussou had riled Lozano up prior to the fight by promising to make the Bellator vet his punching bag, and the two nearly clashed in the staredown prior to the opening bell.

But when the bout got underway, it was Lozano who circled cautiously, and the audience quickly voiced its displeasure.

After an extended feeling-out period, Amoussou drew blood with a high kick that slammed into Lozano's head. Lozano caught it and took the fight to the mat, but he was quickly reversed and flattened out.

Amoussou (14-4-2 MMA, 2-1 BFC) secured a rear-naked choke, and in a flash, the fight was over at the 2:05 mark of the first...

Another great night of fights from Bellator. I'd like to see Amoussou vs. Baker and Saunders vs. Rickels in the semis.

I didn't watch, have it recorded.

Saunders vs Baker should be nice.

yeah...Amoussou looked like a hungry predator. It's going to be fun watching him progress.

I'm surprised Baker won. I gave him the first round, but it was close.

Yeah, I'm not too sure I'd score that fight for him.

If Baker and Saunders make it to the finals, I've got Baker by Decision but its a close one.
If Amoussou and Saunders make it to the finals, I've got Amoussou by TKO.

And my overall pick to win the tourney is the Psycho, he's a beast at 170.
