Wasn't Bellator trying to make some inroads in the UK market? I guess if they have no plans to hold fights there and Daley can't get a US visa, this move makes sense. Hopefully DFW can put his past incident behind and do the right thing for fans. I'm not a big fan of Daley's personality but there is no denying that he is one of the most exciting strikers currently in MMA. With a few favorable matchups, they could build another UK paper contender.

Good luck Paul. I'm convinced if you had an honest conversation with Dana relations could be mended.Your both hot headed but Dana has proven time and again he will bury the hatchet under the right circumstances.I'm a big fan of yours, me and many others would love to see you back in The UFC.Either way, all the best mate.

Is there any chance the UFC would take you back?  Even if you had visa issues you could just do the Vitor Belfort thing and fight outside of the US.  I personally think it's a waste of your talent to be anywhere outside the UFC.  Best of luck either way.

Yes, i have been released by Bellator, due to visa issues resulting from previous offences. Although my application for a new visa WAS NOT DENIED, i am assuming the Bellator legal team thought it would not be possible for me to obtain one, in light of recent events.I apologies to all the fans/supporters, that wanted me to win the Bellator tournament and challenge the boring Ben Arsken for the title....this is not gonna happen now, but we have Martin Stapleton and Rob Cfour Sinclair in Bellator, representing the UK, both im sure will do a great job.I am currently in talks with a number of organisations, and have about half a dozen contracts already in my inbox........but i will take my time, and read through them all. The whole situation has been difficult, but my release now alllows easier negotiation with different organisations.I will be fighting real soon, September. Any media want more information, please inbox me directly.Thank you.

Diaz vs Daley II would be fucking amazing for the UFC on a FOX show

Who gives a fuck about what he deserves?It's not like Diaz is a title contender anymore. Back-to-back losses and zero wins since 2011 have taken him 'out of the mix'. He's just another guy in the middle of pack now. I see nothing wrong with making a rematch of one of the most entertaining fights in recent memory.
