A broken hand has forced Douglas Lima (24-5 MMA, 6-1 BFC) out of his Season 8 welterweight tournament final with Ben Saunders (16-5-2 MMA, 7-2 BFC), Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney today announced.

However, rather than plugging in a replacement, the organization simply will delay the fight a few months and host it as part of its annual Summer Series of events.

An exact date hasn't been determined, a Bellator official today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The fighters initially were slated to fight on March 21 at Bellator 93, which airs on Spike TV from Lewiston, Maine.

Total bummer. Lima is one violent dude. If he gets a good TDD game I'd love to see him in the UFC.
