Swedish-Brazilian bantamweight Felipe Lima is the new OKTAGON bantamweight champion.

After five rounds of action, Lima defeated Jonas Mågård via decision with 48-45, 48-46 and 48-45 on the scorecards. The Swedish-Brazilian put on an impressive performance as he landed solid striking and threatened with numerous submission attempts.

In the fourth round he was deducted a point due to an illegal knee, but was still able to win the fight via unanimous decision.

“This means a lot for me,” Lima said in the post-fight interview. “I’m so glad and happy, that’s why I’m so emotional.”

The new champion gave credit to Mågård after the fight.

“Jonas is a great fighter and a great champ,” Lima said. “I don’t have nothing against this guy.”
