SAN JOSE, Calif. – Lorenz Larkin has made no secret about his disdain for Paul Daley in the lead-up to their welterweight clash at Bellator 183 on Saturday. Today’s ceremonial weigh-ins for the event provided the clearest example.
In their first and last face-to-face meeting ahead of the event, which takes place at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., and airs on Spike following prelims on MMAjunkie, Larkin got heated and pushed Daley after “Semtex” got in his face.
Daley (39-15-2 MMA, 5-2 BMMA), who is no stranger to being involved with antics outside the cage, replied in kind, going after Larkin (18-6 MMA, 0-1 BMMA). The fighters continued to pursue each other, but fortunately there was enough Bellator staff present on stage that the situation was diffused before getting completely out of hand.
The beef going into the fight is relatively one-sided, with Larkin claiming he dislikes Daley so much that simply talking about him takes “months off my life.”
Daley, however, laughs off the whole thing.
“The fact it’s getting so heated up is just comical,” he told MMAjunkie. “But I hope he brings that same intensity into the ring.”
