On Monday, when Paul Daley announced he was returning to Bellator, there was one fighter who was paying particular impression.
Current Bellator welterweight champion Douglas Lima says that he has Daley’s number and just needs to dial it to him.
“I’m ready whenever he is,” Lima told MMAFighting.com. “I will fight whoever they want, no problem at all. It’s going to be a good fight.”
For his part, Daley also doesn’t seem particularly frightened by the prospect of meeting Lima.
“I think I’m going to get a tough first fight, beat that person, and then I think I’ll be in a position to fight Douglas Lima,” Daley said. “That’s not contracted, that’s not been discussed or anything. But the way I see it, coming back to Bellator, I think a big win over one of their bigger welterweight stars and then I’ll be challenging Douglas Lima for the belt.”
