Just when he’ll be able to return Stateside to fight again under the Bellator banner is unclear. But Paul Daley is staying busy in the meantime.

Daley (32-12-2) on Friday took out Rodrigo Ribeiro (9-11) with a second-round TKO at Dubai Fighting Championship 4, which took place at Madinat Arena in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Daley vs. Ribeiro headlined the card. Daley earlier this year received clearance from Bellator officials to travel to Dubai for a stay-busy fight until he can return to Bellator.

After Ribeiro worked hard to avoid Daley’s power in the first round, the Brit couldn’t be denied in the second. He landed a stiff left hand several seconds into the frame that quickly put the Brazilian submission specialist on the canvas. And though Ribeiro popped back up quickly, Daley continued to stagger him.

Once Daley had Ribeiro on the ground again, he moved in on the cage and didn’t let up, letting loose with hammer fists until the fight finally was stopped.

Daley made his Bellator debut at Bellator 72, picking up a TKO win over Rudy Bears. He was booked for Bellator’s welterweight tournament, but his bout with War Machine was scrapped when War Machine was injured. Daley then ran into trouble of his own thanks to an alleged bar fight in his native England caused visa issues with him returning to America to compete.

Daley now has won five of his past six fights, with the lone loss coming to Kazuo Misaki for Strikeforce in March 2012.

Check out the full fight video of his win over Ribeiro above.
