It’s been quite the swing in career momentum for Douglas Lima.

Just two fights ago Lima (32-9 MMA, 14-5 BMMA) was the Bellator welterweight champion who was getting ready to move up to middleweight and challenge for a second title against Gegard Mousasi. Fast-forward to today, and not only did Lima come up short in his champ-champ bid, but he lost his 170-pound title to Yaroslav Amosov (26-0 MMA, 7-0 BMMA).

Lima was thoroughly outworked by Amosov in a unanimous decision loss in the Bellator 260 headliner this past Friday, and suddenly “The Phenom” is on a two-fight skid. The wrestling of his opponent was too much to overcome, and that element has been a reoccurring issue for Lima throughout his career.

The three-time Bellator tournament winner is now 33 years old, and has 41 professional fights under his belt dating back to his MMA debut in July 2006. Losing to Amosov is nothing to be ashamed of, but did it spell the end of Lima’s time as a championship-caliber athlete in Bellator?

That was a topic of discussion in the latest episode of MMA Junkie’s “Spinning Back Clique,” with host George Garcia and analysts Mike Bohn, Nolan King and Brian Garcia.
