Report: Paul Daley Hospitalized, Bellator 247 Has A New Main Event


Bellator makes their debut tomorrow on the CBS Sports Network and does so with a brand new main event for the show following the removal of Paul Daley.

A women’s flyweight division bout between Kate Jackson and Denise Kielholtz will now headline the card, according to Cageside Press. The reason behind the change is that Paul Daley, who was scheduled to face Derek Anderson in the headliner, was hospitalized after a back weight cut.

Gareth A. Davies first reported the news about Daley on Twitter:

There is no word as to whether or not Daley versus Anderson will get rescheduled or if the fighters will go their separate ways.
