Paul Daley is free to fight in the United States again.
According to Bellator president Scott Coker, Daley (34-13-2) has finally been granted a working visa from the US government to resume his Bellator MMA career. Visa issues knocked Daley out of a Bellator welterweight tournament in 2012. As a result, his last 10 MMA and kickboxing fights have taken place overseas.
While the popular British striker recently re-signed with Bellator, his next MMA fight will be for BAMMA on Sept. 13 against Igor Fernandes. Pending his health after that fight, he is expected to fight for Bellator later this year.
"Semtex" has won 4 of 5 in MMA since his lone Bellator appearance in July 2012 -- a first-round TKO of Rudy Bears.
