Last week, rumors began circulating that Bellator was targeting a bout between the heavy hitting Paul Daley and Pokemon-catching viral sensation Michael Page. But that bout hasn’t been officially announced yet because, according to Page, Daley won’t sign the contract. So as extra incentive to get Daley to agree to the fight, “MVP” has been trashing Daley all week long on social media with tweets and Instagram posts calling out “Paula.”

Paulaaaa!!!!! Sign the contract Paulaaaa @bellatormma @shootfightersofficial #Paulaaaa

But as none of this has garnered a response from Daley, today Page took things to another level by releasing an original song and music video about Daley telling him to “sign the contract” and laughing at Daley’s previous suggestion that Daley is Floyd Mayweather to Page’s Adrien Broner.

This is the second musical number Page has released following his Ronda Rousey dance video from earlier this year. He’s still got a ways to go before he can rival Roy Jones as a rapper though.
