Paul Daley-Josh Koscheck Off Once Again, Douglas Lima Steps In


The planned Josh Koscheck-Paul Daley rematch is once again off, as Douglas Lima now meets Daley at Bellator 158.

ESPN first reported the change Monday evening.

Lima, a former Bellator welterweight champion, will be fighting for the first time since losing his belt last year to Andrey Koreshkov. He is 8-2 overall and was expected to fight Chidi Njokuani later this month at Bellator 156.

Daley and Koscheck have been on separate paths since their 2010 meeting in the UFC that ended with Koscheck winning and Daley released after “Semtex” landed a punch after the bell.

Bellator 158 takes place July 16 from The O2 in London.
