Bellator boss Bjorn Rebney today announced more broken hands in Bellator. This time it's Douglas Lima (24-5 MMA, 6-1 BFC) who has been forced out of his Season 8 welterweight tournament final with Ben Saunders (16-5-2 MMA, 7-2 BFC). The fighters were supposed to fight on March 21 at Bellator 93 in Lewiston, Maine. This would be a rematch between these two fighters where in the first fight Lima won with a second-round knockout.

Instead of finding a replacement the promotion has decided to delay the bout.  No specific date has been set, but it will probably be sometime during the summer. 

Lima tweeted: "I broke my hand against Baker and doctor told me not to fight"

This is bad for Bellator as this is the third fighter this year to breake his hand. First it was “Tiger” Sarnavskiy (22-1 MMA, 2-1 BFC) and then Daniel Straus (21-4 MMA, 7-1 BFC), who later was arrested with traffic and several drug charges, and now it's Lima.
