Video: Before Bellator 192, watch champ Douglas Lima's tourney final with Ben Saunders

Filed under: Bellator, News, Videos

Prior to eventually claiming the Bellator welterweight title, Douglas Lima ended his rematch with Ben Saunders in emphatic fashion.

The bout came at Bellator 100 in 2013 and served as the organization’s Season 8 welterweight-tournament final.

Like their first fight, which left UFC vet Saunders knocked out, Lima ended the rematch with a big blow. It came via head kick following a brutal gut punch. Check it out above.

And catch reigning 170-pound champ Lima, who’s No. 8 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA welterweight rankings, back in action on Jan. 20, when he meets challenger Rory MacDonald (19-4 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) in Bellator 192’s headliner.

The fight takes place at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., and airs on Paramount.
