Douglas Lima vs. Yaroslav Amosov welterweight title fight set for Bellator 260 – MMA Root



Bellator welterweight champion Douglas Lima’s next match will take place against an undefeated challenger.

A host of people aware of the promotion’s plans have confirmed to MMA Fighting that Lima is going to defend his welterweight title against Yaroslav Amosov at the Bellator 260. The event will take place June 11 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut and will air on Showtime. Yahoo! Kinds of sports was the first to report a booking.

Lima returns to 170 after failing to become champion in two divisions. Fenom moved up to fight Geghard Mousasi for the vacant Bellator middleweight title and lost by unanimous decision at the Bellator 250 last October. This will mark Lim’s first title defense in his current reign since defeating Rory MacDonald at Bellator 232 to win the Welterweight Promotion Grand Prix and regain his belt.

Amosov entered his first title fight with a perfect 25-0 finish, six of which went to Bellator. Dynamo have won victories over Ed Root, Gerald Harris, David Rickels and, most recently, Logan Storley to earn themselves the opportunity to become champions.
