Paul Daley UFC 113Paul Daley‘s next fight is now set for Bellator 79 as he takes on veteran welterweight fighter Kyle “Alley Cat” Baker at Casino Rama in Ontario, Canada.

Baker announced the fight via his Facebook page on Saturday, and additional sources confirmed the bout to MMAWeekly.com as well.

Daley had an impressive performance in his Bellator debut earlier this year when he knocked out Rudy Bears in the first round. Now, with Daley gunning for a slot in the Bellator season 8 welterweight tournament kicking off on Spike TV in 2013, he will first look to get another win before the year is out.

Facing Daley in Canada will be 18-fight veteran, Kyle “Alley Cat” Baker.

Baker has fought in several regional promotions around the country and holds wins over veteran fighters such as Drew Fickett and LeVon Maynard, as well as a TKO victory over top Ohio prospect Nick Duell.

Now Baker will get the chance to pick up the biggest win of his career facing Paul Daley at Bellator 79.
