Lima is currently in the middle of a terrible three-fight losing streak that saw him lose to Gegard Mousasi in his attempt to win the Middleweight title, lose his Welterweight belt to Yaroslav Amonov, and fail to go two-for-2 against Michael Page.

Douglas Lima vs. Jason Jackson. There’s a changing of guards in Bellator. Ryan Bader, Mousasi, and Lima have all lost their World Titles to new faces in recent years. Amosov and Johnny Eblen, as well as Vadim Nemkov, have emerged to be the next generation’s top dogs. Recent performances have seen Lima appear somewhat muted. Although many sided with Page in the split decision loss, the performance was far from the impressive second-round knockout that he gave to “MVP” in their first encounter. Jackson would be preferred over Lima’s earlier versions — possibly “The Phenom”, which has won seven straight knockout wins, or the more balanced version that dethroned Rory MacDonald. At this stage, not.
