It seems we may never get to see the rematch between Paul Daley and Josh Koscheck.
The rematch which was scheduled for the Bellator 158 card in London has now been scrapped due to the withdrawal of Koscheck.
Paul Daley will still fight on the card and will now be meeting former Bellator Welterweight Champion Douglas “The Phenom” Lima.
Bellator confirmed the news to EPSN.com and no reason for his withdrawal was given.
Former Champion Lima dropped the belt to Andrey Koreshkov in July 2015 and hasn’t competed since. Prior to that loss, Lima was on a five fight win streak with all wins coming by way of stoppage.
The current Bellator 158 card looks like this;
TBD vs. James Thompson
Douglas Lima vs. Paul Daley
Michael Page vs. Fernando Gonzalez
Linton Vassell vs. Francis Carmont
Mark Godbeer vs. James Mulheron
Bola Omoyele vs. Lee Chadwick
Alex Reid vs. TBD
Mike Shipman vs. Curtis Widmer
Pietro Menga vs. Spencer Hewitt
Luiz Henrique Tosta vs. Dean Garnett
Jason Radcliffe vs. Jack Mason
Chase Morton vs. Nathaniel Woods
CJ Meeks vs. Danny Mitchell
