Paul Daley was supposed to compete earlier today at Bellator 247, but the fighter had health issues due to the weight cut and was pulled from the card.
Daley, who has already competed 60 times as a professional MMA fighter, has decided that fight no. 61 is going to be his last. The fighter made the announcement through Instagram:
Forever a samurai. But soon we will put the blade to rest. After discussions and careful consideration with my family, it has been decided that my next fight @bellatormma will be my last. To be fought at a catch weight of 175lbs. Opponent and location to be confirmed. Health before Wealth, and NEVER COMPROMISE YOURSELF. ------
There is no word at this time as to whom Daley will battle in his retirement fight or when that bout will take place.
