Daley has remained active outside the Bellator MMA cage, with the promotion’s approval, racking up two victories in the process. Daley is currently scheduled to fight at Cage Warriors 57 against Lukasz Chlewicki on July 20.

While the inability to secure a visa has caused considerable friction between Bellator MMA and Daley, the dropped charges could allow Daley to return to the cage this fall. Daley has considerably good options in the Bellator cage, with fellow heavy-hitters Ben Saunders, Douglas Lima, and War Machine waiting in the wings.
