“I don’t know who that is,” MVP told MMA Junkie. “I’ve never heard of his name. I don’t even know who you’re talking about right now. Probably some random garbage fighter that has a big mouth.”

MVP and Daley did get physical at Bellator 179, the two fighters would have to be separated by security.

With his pro boxing debut now a thing of the past, the British fighter is waiting to see what Bellator MMA wants him to do next.

“I’m completely fine, no injuries,” MVP said. “I’m not going to make any decisions on the fight, because I don’t anyway. If Bellator is excited for me to be in Newcastle, they’re going to be speaking to the right people on my team. They probably have spoken already, and when I get in the gym, we sit down and talk next best move. I’m an employee, and I do what I’m told. This is where they want me; I go there and do that. They gave me the opportunity to do this, and I’m massively thankful. I should go and pay them back, knock someone out in MMA.”

The Newcastle event that MVP is referring to in the upcoming Bellator 191 card, which is set to take place on Friday, December 15.
