    Just got done watching Lima's last couple Bellator KO's and damn, I think this one would be super exciting, as would alot of matchups made possible if the UFC was to overtake Bellator.

    What do you think about this match up?

    Lima/Kampmann, Lima/Condit, Lima/Mein Lima/Lawler would all be great.

    Lima is one of the best WWs in the world, he'd send a lot of ufc WWs to canvas.

    Lima vs Alves would be my dream fight at 170lbs.

    Lima's weakness is his wrestling and Ellenberger isn't above lay and pray. I'd pick Ellenberger to resort to takedowns.

    With no Askren around, Lima is a lock to get that belt. Bellator won't ever let him go anywhere.

    Lima versus anyone would be awesome, and Ellenberger rarely has boring fights (used to say never, but damn you Rory MacDonald fight). Anyway, I'd like to see Ellenberger starch Askren, too.

    I think it would be stellar and that Lima would take it by superior stand up.


    I really want to see Lima vs Condit. I think those two would tear it up.

    I'd love to see Jake Shields in Bellator as well.


    Oh wait, which Jake are we talking about again?

    He's one of the bunch out of Bellator's roster I could see holding a top 10 spot in the UFC.

    Wow, Lima is extremely overrated here. Just goes to show you how destroying mediocre competition is seen as better than struggling against top competition. This is the reason why promoters will feed prospects cans.

    Anyway, there's probably at least 10 UFC WW's that could do to him what Askren did, and plenty more with equal or superior standup that could stand with him. But I guess beating the likes of Bryan Baker and 'Killa B' makes you a top WW. :rolleyes:

    Me too. Lima x Alves and Lima x Brown looks good too.

    And unless Bellator closes shop, he's not going anywhere. They should sign Okami and have Yushin/Lima.

    Wrong weight classes.

    Lima/Siyar as well would be great.

    There are a plethora of sweet matchups. Unfortunately I have a feeling that Lima would be a guy Bellator would pull an Alvarez in order to keep.
