Paul “Semtex” Daley Not Happy With Bellator Fighting Championships

Former UFC and Strikeforce knockout artist, Paul “Semtex” Daley slammed his employers at Bellator today for vetoing a series of fights on the local circuit while a separate visa issue is straightened out, as well as charging other promoters a booking fee for using him on their shows.

Daley, posting via his Facebook page said:

“Just got word Bellator have refused to allow me to fight yet another opponent!!! It’s becoming really frustrating that even though they are not my managers, they can approve my fights.

I’ve got great fights offered to keep me busy fighting and earning, and they seem to want to put a stop to this….all this while, having to pay for my OWN legal costs on a matter that influence my visa outcome…and my ability to fight for the promotion (Bellator) Its bullshit.

There’s a lot more too…with regards to other promoters having to PAY Bellator a “Booking fee” for using me on there(sic) shows?….
