Paul Daley

Top British welterweight Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley has officially received his visa, and is now cleared to fight in the United States under the Bellator banner.

Having previously competed in both the UFC and Strikeforce, knockout specialist Semtex (35-13-2) first joined the ranks of Bellator in 2012. For his debut with the promotion as the Nottingham slugger produced a first round TKO victory over Rudy Bears; however his time with promotion was cut short due to visa issues, and the striking specialist was released to fight elsewhere around the globe.

After once again signing with Bellator back in July, he spoke exclusively with MMA Plus to give some insight on the factors behind his return.
