Former Strikeforce and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Paul Daley hasn't been seen stateside since beating the brakes off Rudy Bears at Bellator 72 over two years ago.
Since then, "Semtex" has demolished the international circuit, going on a violent 5-1 run that saw all five of his wins end by way of brutal knockout (taste the pain). That's because Daley (35-13-2) hits hard, y'all, and is still only 31 years old.
And it doesn't look like that ZUFFA return is going to work out.
But the good news is, Daley is expected to return to Bellator in early 2015, according to MMA Fighting, and will likely find himself at or near the top of a televised Spike TV card. While the relationship has been a rocky one at times, everyone's favorite fight boss, Scott Coker, is now steering the ship.
Now the question is, who do you want to see Daley face in his first fight back?
