Daley Responds to Koscheck Challenge: ‘At Least Get a Win in Bellator’

June 29, 2015 2:20 pm by BJPENN.COM News


After several years, Josh Koscheck is finally back at home with SPIKE. Now a Bellator fighter, Koscheck was quick to make his first challenge and revealed he had his sights set on a rematch with Paul Daley.

The two had previously met in the co main-event of UFC 113 in a bout that was filled with controversy. From debatable eye pokes to strikes after the final horn, the bout ended with Daley getting cut from the promotion which led to his return to kickboxing.

Since then, Daley has become a powerhouse in Bellator and is on his way to a title run. Upon hearing Koshcheck’s challenge, Daley told BJPENN.COM, “Obviously he’s gonna call me out. Despite him being on a losing streak, it’s a big fight and definitely a grudge match. People, my fans and supporters, can’t wait.”

Daley continued, “However, Mr. Crotch-Check will have to wait— at least get a Bellator win. For me, my immediate focus is a shot at the title. Right now, I can’t overlook Denis Olson. I can’t overlook my scheduled GLORY kickboxing fight.”
