Paul Daley Even when he was staring down Josh Koscheck , Bellator welterweight Paul Daley had his doubts whether they would ever actually fight. Despite the Viacom-owned promotion’s efforts to build toward a showdown between the longtime rivals , six years after Daley (38-13-2 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) infamously sucker-punched Koscheck (17-10 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) and was cut from the UFC , the British veteran suspected his American counterpart wouldn’t face him a second time. In fact, Daley wondered whether Koscheck ever will fight again. “Maybe it was a bit of an anchor, if things didn’t work out with his other business ventures, or whatever else that he’s got going on that he can fall back,” Daley, who now meets Douglas Lima (26-6 MMA, 8-2 UFC) on Saturday at Bellator 158, told MMAjunkie.
