Team VaporFi’s Douglas Lima Looks to Retain Title at Bellator 192
With a string of incredible bouts on tap, the stage is set for another night of incredible MMA action coming your way! This Saturday, January 20th, Team VaporFi and Bellator MMA once again will join forces to bring you Bellator 192!
To kick off 2018 in style, the new year’s first event of mixed martial arts returns to The Forum, a storied arena in Los Angeles that will play host to yet another night of unforgettable action at the highest level in professional MMA. And this time Douglas “The Phenom” Lima will rep the VaporFi name as he defends his welterweight crown, and of course, FIGHTS FOR YOUR RIGHT TO VAPE!
The level of talent amassed for this event is sure to keep all eyes on the prized Bellator cage. With five bouts scheduled aboard the fight card, Team VaporFi MMA focused its determination in sponsoring a major title contender for Bellator 192. And they succeeded in a big way, landing Welterweight Champion Douglas Lima for Saturday night’s co-main event against Rory MacDonald. A bout that will produce not only a matchup worth its weight in gold but may very well lay to rest the argument as to who is the best mixed martial artist at the welterweight level on the planet today.
Set to air on the newly branded Paramount Network (formerly Spike TV), at 9 PM EST, this exciting event is a testament to Bellator MMA, along with Team VaporFi’s continued commitment, in bringing the best all-around talent from the most dominant fighting disciplines into the octagon for the foreseeable future to come. This thriving reality comes as a result of the relentless pursuit of success, long-rooted in both professional MMA and the vape industry. Both of these industries have grown to become multi-billion dollar juggernauts whose popularity and respected followings only continue to prosper.
Sharing in such success, the co-main event at Bellator 192 features two of the most celebrated welterweight MMA fighters of recent memory. Douglas ” The Phenom” Lima, representing Team VaporFi, finally gets the opponent he’s been waiting for in Rory “The Red King” MacDonald to defend his Bellator MMA Welterweight Championship Title.
Highly regarded for his extraordinary ability and skill, “The Phenom,” as Lima is affectionately known, hails from Goiania, Goias, Brazil. An established mixed martial artist, he has garnered the most success since signing on with Bellator in 2011, totaling an 11-2 record including 8 KO/TKO victories in that span with the California-based promotional company. The 30-year-old Lima has won his last 3 bouts including a successful title defense against Lorenz Larkin after successfully regaining the Welterweight Championship from Andrey Koreshkov more than a year after losing the title to the Russian MMA specialist. Seen by many throughout the MMA world as the premier welterweight championship title bout against MacDonald, Lima himself knows the potential implications and supremacy that await the winner at Bellator 192.
“It’s one of the best fights at welterweight, right now,” Lima said during a recent conference call with Sherdog.com. “It doesn’t matter which organization, at welterweight, this is one of the best fights ever.”
Standing in Lima’s way is one of the biggest names to sign with Bellator MMA in quite some time. Since his move from the UFC, Rory MacDonald has made his presence known with a dominating rear-naked choke submission win over Paul Daley at Bellator 179. The successful debut performance combined with the hype surrounding his decision to join Bellator in 2016 has catapulted him into elite status. The welterweight title fight against Lima is sure to be a hot one, as it stands as one of the most competitive weight classes. The 28-year-old Canadian has a well established 19-4 career record including 7 KO/TKOs to his credit.
With a stellar lineup of MMA talent on display, don’t miss a moment of Bellator 192, live from The Forum in Inglewood California. The Paramount Network (formerly Spike TV) will air all of the action starting at 9 PM EST. And, of course, enjoy the show as Team VaporFi FIGHTS FOR YOUR RIGHT TO VAPE!
