Undefeated welterweight prospect Dhiego Lima
has agreed to a four-fight contract with the Canada-based Maximum
Fighting Championship promotion. Terms of the deal were not
Perfect in five professional appearances, Lima (Pictured; file

at MFC 30 “Up Close and Personal” on June 10 at the Mayfield Inn
Trade and Conference Centre, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The
21-year-old Atlanta-based Brazilian has finished all five of his
foes, four of them by submission.
“I’m young, I’m undefeated and I’m hungry,” Lima said in a release.
“I will be trouble, but I’m still going to be patient. I’m not
going to rush anything, but I know after winning my last fight that
I’m ready to take a bigger step up in competition. I’m going to go
out and put on a show.”
Lima last appeared at MFC 29 on April 8, when he submitted Josh
Taveirne with a third-round rear-naked choke. His older
Lima, holds the MFC welterweight championship.
“I definitely want to get the belt,” the younger Lima said.
“There’s nobody in the division outside of my brother that I can’t
beat. This is my chance to go all the way to the top.”
