NEW YORK – In terms of interest, Bellator welterweight Paul Daley compares his showdown with Michael Page to a pair of blockbusters between U.K. boxers Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank. In terms of bad blood, it might fall short of “ The Hate Game .” After two years of back-and-forth, Daley (40-16-2 MMA, 6-3 BMMA) is ready to put the rivalry to bed and do his job against “Venom” Page (13-0 MMA, 9-0 BMMA). The particulars of how he got to this point aren’t that important. Daley traces the beef back to a post-fight interview where he cast himself as Floyd Mayweather to Page’s Adrien Broner. The whole thing took on a life of its own after that.
