Tonight, Bellator Fighting Championships returns to MTV2. In the main event, welterweight champion Ben Askren will defend his belt against tournament champion Douglas Lima. The rest of the main card features bouts in the featherweight and bantamweight tournaments. This is easily one of the best cards, on paper, so far this season.
Due to his success in the Dream tournament, Masakazu Imanari has walked away from his Deep title. Hiroshi Nakamura and Takafumi Otsuka will fight for the now-vacant belt.
