Brazil’s Felipe Lima has a lot of things going for him. He’s a young man fighting at 23-years-old. He trains out of Allstars Training Center where Khamzat Chimaev and many others call home. More importantly, Lima is the current Fight Club Rush bantamweight champion. That title he won in November by a flying knee to the body in the first round.

Lima has massive potential. He has gone the distance five times and that doesn’t mean he lacks the killer instinct, because he goes after it. Lima is a dynamic striker. He’s an athletic fighter that favors the flying knee. He goes body to head better than most. Lima is very well-rounded as his grappling and wrestling are up to par. It’s just there in his back pocket when needed. He’s young, exciting, and has a lot of promise so what more can you ask for?
