Paul Daley at Strike/ Elite XCPaul Daley will not be a participant in the Bellator season 8 welterweight tournament, but the fighter denies charges levied against him about a bar fight.

On Christmas day, reports began to surface that Daley was charged with assault stemming from a bar brawl in England, and the pending charges have kept the fighter from receiving a visa to return to the United States for work, in his case fighting for Bellator.

While Daley is indeed out of the tournament, the fighter stated late Wednesday night that he emphatically denies the allegations that he was involved in a bar fight.

“It seems as though (sp) a mass press release has gone out to the MMA media stating I was involved (in a) bar brawl, arrested, and cannot obtain a P-1 visa to compete in the USA. I am currently awaiting a decision on my visa, which is not expected until late April. Which means I am unable to compete in the season 8 Bellator tournament, as it starts in January,” Daley wrote in a message via Facebook.

“I will be fighting in Europe in the coming months, so I am able to stay active while awaiting a decision on my visa status. I was not involved in a bar brawl. This is 100-percent a false statement.”

Bellator Fighting Championships has yet to make a statement regarding the matter. MMAWeekly.com will continue to follow this story as it develops.
