Paul Daley Throws Big Shade At Bellator: ‘Bellator Are So On It’s Ass it’s Sickening’
British welterweight Paul Daley has taken a big swipe at Bellator MMA and president Scott Coker on social media today following comments that Coker made about his fellow countrymen Michael “Venom” Page at the Bellator 192 press conference yesterday.
Coker was asked by a member of the media his plans for Page in 2018. Coker responded by saying:
“We’re expecting MVP to come back sometime in April or May. We’re going to sit down with him and keep him busy. I’d like to see him in the cage more.”
Suffice to say, Daley didn’t take Coker’s comments all that well and he took to his Facebook account this evening to express his thoughts:
“Scott Coker talking about Page at the Bellator presser, Bellator are Sooooooo on ass it’s sickening ? He hasn’t fought MMA in how long, his last performance in boxing and MMA were terrible.
I beat Lorenz Larkin former UFC guy, top 6 when he left the organisation…by KO and they sweep it under the rug? and then sideline me….
I’m gonna Fight out my contract…..THAT MVP Fight WONT BE HAPPENING…under the Bellator banner anyways….So FUCK Bellator, 18 more month in this game and two more fights for Bellator and I’m done.”
Coker has previously stated late last year that the organisation were targeting a showdown between Daley and Page in early 2018. Given Daley’s outburst today, that fight doesn’t now appear to be so likely.
That said, a big check these days solves most issues in the fight game.
