It's been a whirlwind past two months for welterweight star-in-the-making Douglas Lima (21-4 MMA, 3-0 BFC).

The 23-year-old American Top Team Atlanta product marched his way through Bellator's season-five welterweight tournament in impressive fashion with three wins in a span of two months.

Now he has only two things on his mind, and two things only: rest and relaxation, and welterweight champion Ben Askren (9-0 MMA, 6-0 BFC).

In defeating Steve Carl, Chris Lozano, and Ben Saunders in succession, Lima earned the right to challenge Askren for his belt, and according to Lima, the fight will take place near the end of March or the beginning of April in 2012.

However, first things first. His body has some healing to do before he heads back into the gym.
