Michael Page: ‘Daley Is A B**** And Has Been Bullied Into Signing, Now I’m Going To Destroy Him’
First he was out, now he is in; Paul Daley is in the Bellator welterweight tournament and looks set for a titanic showdown with Michael Page in the first round.
Yesterday at a DAZN press conference, Bellator President Scott Coker announced that Bellator welterweight champion Rory MacDonald, Michael Page, Douglas Lima, Lorenz Larkin, Ed Ruth, Jon Fitch, Neiman Gracie and Andrey Koreshkov would be the participants in Bellator’s 170lbs tournament.
Of course, one glaring name was missing from the list, Paul Daley.
Thankfully, it appears Daley has now signed on the dotted line and that he’s on a collision course for a showdown with longtime rival Page (reported by Ariel Helwani of ESPN)
Paul Daley and Bellator have finally come to terms on a new deal, sources confirm. Current plan is for him to meet MVP in the first round of the Bellator 170 pound tournament. Date TBD.

Speaking exclusively to MMAnytt.com this evening, Page responded to Daley entering in the tournament and him likely meeting him in the first round:
“The main reason I signed is because Bellator said I would get him first round that’s why I was pissed when I heard he bitched out,” Page said.
“He’s a bitch and was bullied into signing now I’m gonna destroy whats left of him.”
Only one fight has been announced so far in the tournament with Lima taking on Koreshkov, but things already appear to be heating up rather nicely.
