Paul Daley arrested for assault, Bellator future in jeopardy

Paul DaleyIt looks like legal woes have once again interfered with welterweight War Machine’s plans to put his skills to the test inside a Bellator cage. However, this time around it wasn’t the Ultimate Fighter alumnus’ behavior bringing law enforcement into the equation but rather that of opponent Paul Daley.

According to a report from ESPN, Daley was arrested in England for assault relating to a bar fight and is prohibited from traveling overseas as a result. As a result, “Semtex” has been pulled from his Season 8 tournament tilt with Machine and could face up to two years behind bars if convicted of the crime.

No details were provided regarding the circumstances surrounding his extra-curricular activities. Neither Bellator or Daley’s camp have released an official comment on the matter.

The 29-year old Daley has crossed the line before in terms of failing to reel in his raucousness, throwing a strike Josh Koscheck at after the conclusion of a clash in 2010. He hasn’t seen official action since July when he beat Rudy Bears in his Bellator debut.

    He didn’t attempt, he did punch him in the chin.
