By FCF Staff
The bout will be part of Titan FC 39, which will take place in Coral Gables, Florida. The fight, which will be a title shot eliminator, was reported first by MMA Junkie.com.
Lima (11-4) recently returned to the cage for the first time in nearly a year, and decisioned Antonio Trocoli under the Legacy FC banner. The bout marked the first time Lima had fought since May, 2015, when he was stopped by Jingliang Li at UFC FN 66.
Michaud (9-2) also recently scored a win, as the welterweight submitted Chris Hugh at RFA 37 last month. Michaud was coming off a submission loss to Olivier Aubin-Mercier at UFC 186 in April, 2015.
Titan FC 39 will be headlined by a lightweight fight between Pat Healy and “JZ” Cavalcante for the vacant lightweight title. The card will be broadcast on Fight Pass.
