• Speaking of Askren, Bellator is poised to crown his successor as welterweight champion. The winners of the promotion's last two 170-pound tournaments, Rick Hawn and Douglas Lima, will meet in the main event of a fight card Friday in Council Bluffs, Iowa (9 p.m. ET, Spike). Both men have fought for a Bellator belt before, with Lima losing a decision to Askren in 2012 and Hawn, the former judo Olympian, getting choked out by lightweight champ Michael Chandler last year.
