Bellator Signs Welterweight Douglas Lima To New Deal

Douglas Lima has agreed to a new contract with Bellator MMA, the welterweight disclosed on Twitter Tuesday.

Lima, 25 years old, is 25-5 in his MMA career and a perfect 4-0 since a 2012 decision loss to Ben Askren for the Bellator title. Askren is currently unsigned, but still holds the title.

“I just re-signed with Bellator long term,” Lima wrote. “I’m very happy and blessed! Working very hard to GET THAT BELT!!”

The Brazilian has won two Bellator tournament titles, claiming the season five and eight crowns.
