As longtime Bellator commentator Jimmy Smith tells it, there are certain fights that bring out your inner-fan.

If a welterweight contest between knockout artist and Paul Daley (39-15-2 MMA, 5-2 BMMA) and precision striker Lorenz Larkin (18-6 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) doesn’t do it, you might want to check out tennis.

The pair face off Saturday on the Spike-televised main card of Bellator 183, which takes place at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. Headlining the event is a lightweight fight between onetime title challengers Benson Henderson and Patricky “Pitbull” Freire.

Larkin and Daley would be fireworks without a grudge, but they’ve added that to the mix, too. Daley was dismissive of Larkin’s abilities in interviews, leading Larkin to declare, “I’ve never not liked somebody like this guy.”

The budding rivals both hope to get back in the title picture after recent setbacks. Larkin, a high-profile UFC defector, fell short to champ Douglas Lima in his promotional debut, while Daley was submitted by Rory MacDonald, another big acquisition for the Viacom-owned promotion.

With Lima and MacDonald now scheduled to square off on Jan. 20, the winner of Saturday’s bout will be back in the running. But they’ll first look to settle a score. Watch the above video to get a full breakdown on the fight.
