    Damn, that's a good point. As a younger guy in the sport, I'd guess he's feeling the financial effects of that too.

    I think they should just give Ben the title shot.
    Fully agree. Now both Bens have to be out a lot longer. This is partly why I don't like their tournament style.

    Douglas Lima has suffered another injury that will postpone his Season 8 welterweight final against Ben Saunders.

    Sherdog.com on Tuesday confirmed with sources close to the situation that Lima has torn cartilage his ribs and will be unable to compete July 31 at Bellator 97, which takes place at Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, N.M., and airs live on Spike TV. It is currently unclear whether Saunders will compete on the card or wait for Lima’s return.

    Lima and Saunders first met in November 2011 for the Season 5 tournament final, with Lima stopping “Killa B” via second-round knockout. Following that victory, Lima challenged welterweight champion Ben Askren, falling in a unanimous decision last year at Bellator 64. “The Phenom” then returned for the Season 8 tourney earlier this year, knocking out Michail Tsarev and Bryan Baker to advance to the finals. However, a broken hand sustained during Lima’s semifinal clash with “The Beast” forced Bellator officials to move his rematch with Saunders from March to July.
