Dhiego Lima ready to flip his recent script with a big win at UFC 231


On a three-fight skid overall, just 1-5 in the promotion in two stints, and losses in two separate “Ultimate Fighter” finals, Lima is realistic about his good fortune – and the belief that the members of the UFC brass who have kept him there have faith he can turn things around.


After a loss to Eddie Gordon in the “TUF 19” middleweight finals, Lima picked up his lone UFC win.


The 25th season of “The Ultimate Fighter” was the “redemption” show – and brought back past contestants for another shot.


That was Lima’s ticket back in, and though he reached another finale, this time at welterweight, he was submitted by Jesse Taylor in July 2017.


He didn’t like that matchup – Okami stifled his striking at just about every turn – and said he was injured going into the fight, to boot.


On the occasion of its historic 100th event, Cage Warriors delivered with 10 fights, and nary a decision in Cardiff, Wales.
