    So this is pretty strange..him being locked up with Bellator and just winning the WW tournament means this has to either be some random ass typo, or maybe they signed his brother Dhiego and got the names mixed up..?

    That's a bit strange, would love to see him in the UFC though. Lima vs Condit is a dream fight of mine.

    That would be pretty awesome, he's tied up with Bellator for now though so this can't be right. Isn't he gonna fight for the WW championship over there? I sure hope he's signed with the UFC though, he's one of my favorite fighters outside the UFC.

    Yes, both Lima brothers, Jucao, Raphael Assuncao, etc. Dhiego is a total BEAST and is every bit as good as Douglas. Hell, all of them are beasts.

    I have not heard anything from either of them, but if I do it'll be on BJPENN.COM (sorry for the shameless plug haha). At any rate, he did fight not that long ago, and I'm not sure where his contractual obligations stand, but don't be surprised if either of these guys end up in the UFC.

    All the fighters know where the competition is, so naturally they all gravitate there. I'll ask Douglas and Diego for the details though, and come back and let everyone know what they say.

    Cause ya know Lima doesnt wanna get blanketed again by Askren so this could make sense.

    Well, Dhiego Lima DEFINITELY tried out for TUF 18.
    I'd say odds are that he was signed outright, and its a typo.

    I would expect that much of Blork's willingness to let Askren go is due to his hopes that Lima would become champ.

    That said, I would not expect Bellator to let go of Lima easily. Hopefully there is no matching clause in his contract.
