Michael ‘Venom’ Page isn’t the only fighter Paul Daley has it in for.
At yesterday’s Bellator 183 weigh-ins, Daley almost came to blows with fellow welterweight striker Lorenz Larkin at San Jose’s SAP Center.
Daley and Larkin will square off in tonight’s main card, but things almost kicked off when Larkin pushed Daley during the face-off after the weigh-ins. Daley, of course, tried to fire back but was immediately separated by security. Both men traded verbal barbs, with former UFC contender Larkin calling ‘Semtex’ a ‘b-tch’.

Things get heated between #PaulDaley & @da_MONSOON. Don't miss it tomorrow night on @spike! #Bellator183 pic.twitter.com/z8MHaIYF8b— Bellator MMA (@BellatorMMA) September 23, 2017
Larkin, 31, left the UFC on a two-fight win streak — beating Jorge Masvidal and Neil Magny — but lost to Douglas Lima in his championship Bellator debut. ‘The Monsoon’ is considered one of the best welterweights in the world.
Daley, an MMA veteran of 14 years, was booted from the UFC in 2010 after sucker punching Josh Koscheck after the bell. The British, Nottingham-based talent went on to compete in various MMA promotions and is considered one of the top 170-pound contenders in Bellator.
Bellator 183, which features a headlining tilt between Benson Henderson and Patricky ‘Pitbull’, takes place later tonight, Sept. 23, at the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
