Gegard Mousasi is once again Bellator MMA middleweight champion.

The UFC and Strikeforce champion claimed the vacant 185-pound strap for a second time with a five-round verdict against reigning welterweight king Douglas Lima in the Bellator 251 headliner this past Thursday. Mousasi has won 10 of his last 11 professional appearances — a run that includes triumphs over the likes of Lima, Lyoto Machida, Rory MacDonald, Chris Weidman, Uriah Hall, Vitor Belfort and Thiago Santos, to name a few.

Meanwhile, Uriah Hall shook off a slow start to end Anderson Silva’s Octagon tenure in unceremonious fashion with a fourth-round technical knockout victory in the UFC Fight Night 181 headliner on Saturday. “Primetime” is currently trending upward at middleweight with three consecutive victories — tied for the longest winning streak of his UFC tenure.
