Paul Daley’s licensing woes may soon be in his rear-view mirror. The Bellator Welterweight was set to make his debut with the promotion at the beginning of Season 8 when the promotion debuted on Spike, but due to an assault charge that took place in England the fighter was allowed to obtain a visa in order to fight in the states. This left Daley’s and Bellator’s hands tied, and Daley was off taking fights where he could around the world. According to reports, Daley says the charges have been dropped because of the weak nature of the case, and this should pave the way for Daley to be able to fight in the states and finally make his Bellator debut.
Daley told Bleacher Report
“The case was thrown out, lack of evidence and contradicting witness accounts. I’m extremely happy. Applying for my P-1 visa as we speak and hope to return to the USA and Bellator later this year.”
