The final round of the Season 8 welterweight tournament has been delayed until the summer as Douglas Lima broke his hand. Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney confirmed the news today. Lima was set to meet Ben Saunders at Bellator 93 later this month.

No exact date for the fight has been announced, just that it’s set for the Summer Series.
Lima and Saunders met once before at Bellator 57 in the finals of the Season 5 tournament, which saw Lima take a second round knockout.
