Lima is one of the brightest prospects coming out of Brazil. He has yet to fight off of his home turf, but brings to Bellator a spotless 8-0 record, having finished six of his eight opponents.
Known for his superior ground game, Lima isn’t a one-trick pony. While he has an aggressive submission attack, he has also been quick to improve his stand-up game, and has a couple of knockouts to his credit.
Bellator’s Season 5 bantamweight tournament already has a full roster, so it’s not exactly clear yet when or where Lima will make his promotional debut.
