Douglas Lima captured the Bellator welterweight title last April, besting Rick Hawn.
Injuries, though, have kept Lima from defending the belt. He was scheduled to meet Paul Daley recently, but a knee issue canceled the contest.
On Twitter, Lima (26-5) posted that he is targeting July for a return to action:
Getting beat up in rehab! Planning to fight in July! So hungry to fight!! Stronger I will be! Let's do this!!!! pic.twitter.com/1JQ1taqKKr
