It looks like hard-hitting welterweight Paul Daley’s follow-up fight in Bellator will have to wait after news surfaced revealing the British brawler had withdrawn from a November 2 match-up with Kyle Baker. While the 29-year old is healthy enough to compete, he apparently ran into some issues obtaining a visa and was unable to resolve the matter in time for the Bellator 79 bout.
Daley won his Bellator debut in July, stopping opponent Rudy Bears with strikes midway through the tilt’s opening round.
MMAFighting was first to report Daley’s status. The outlet also confirmed bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas would be unavailable for the card for precautionary reasons after suffering a knockout loss outside of Bellator in August.
