Paul Daley is not an angry man.
Known for his aggressive style of combat and one-time level knockout power, Daley is at peace these days. The Nottingham, England based fighter is up against arguably his biggest challenge to date. A lanky, ferocious, unconventional striker from London known as Michael “Venom” Page.
The two have been looking at each other through the cage for a long time, but neither had a real reason to engage.
After staring at each other through the cage for years, Daley and MVP will finally face off in the Bellator welterweight tournament. The winner becomes the man at the top of the mountain in the division.
But for Daley, who has fought across the globe in many MMA promotions, this is about peace of mind. He’s been relevant for years in the sport, yet he hasn’t received the type of hype many of the newer fighters have received.
Still, as a veteran that has been in highly publicized wars and held titles, Daley has nothing to prove. As a result, he is walking into this battle with his head held high and tranquility amid the tumult. We sat down with Daley before his big match at Bellator 216. Check it out.
