Douglas Lima Says He May Move Up To Middleweight
- Douglas Lima, who fights in Bellator’s welterweight tournament this week, recently spoke about moving up to middleweight. Here is what he had to say…
“I’m really thinking about moving up a weight class real soon. I don’t know how much longer I can keep making the weight. It’s a big thing I’m thinking about right now – maybe even later this year. Let’s see how this tournament turns out, and let’s see what’s going to happen.
It’s not just the tournament. I’m just getting too big – 35 to 40 pounds is too much to cut. I don’t want to kill my body. Right now, I’m young and I can do it. But later on, it’s not going to be much fun. I eat a lot, but I do eat healthy – just too much intake. But before a fight, I eat really clean for six weeks. It’s not about eating better – it’s just how much I like to eat.”
