Douglas Lima captured the Bellator welterweight title last April, besting Rick Hawn.

Injuries, though, have kept Lima from defending the belt. He was scheduled to meet Paul Daley recently, but a knee issue canceled the contest.

On Twitter, Lima (26-5) posted that he is targeting July for a return to action:
