A welterweight meeting between Paul, ‘Semtex’ Daley, and Sabah ‘The Punisher’ Homasi has been added to Bellator 241 on March 13th. from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. The pairing of the two is a rescheduling of their matchup at Bellator 232 last October – where Homasi was forced to withdraw from the bout due to injury. Daley would go on to meet Saad Awad, winning via a second-round knockout.
Nottingham native, Daley has won two straight fights since his forgetful meeting with fierce-rival, Michael ‘Venom’ Page – adding Awad to a winning streak which includes former UFC welterweight contender, Erick Silva. The 36-year-old enters his fifth year under Scott Coker’s Bellator MMA banner and holds eye-catching wins over the likes of Lorenz Larkin, Brennan Ward, Jorge Masvidal, Martin Kampmann, and Duane Ludwig since his professional debut back in 2003. Daley is recognized as one of the sport’s biggest punchers, lodging an incredible thirty-one separate knockout wins.
New Jersey native, Homasi will make his second appearance, of his second stint in the Bellator cage, following a success debut victory over Micah Terrill last August – as he grabbed a shocking seventeen-second knockout victory. Homasi had spent three years in the UFC – losing three times to Tim Means, and twice Abdul Razak Alhassan. Homasi, 31, plys his trade in Miami, Florida with American Top Team – and looks to enter the welterweight title fray with what would prove, a career-highlight win over Daley.
