Paul Daley, Eduardo Dantas Off Bellator 79

Paul Daley and Eduardo Dantas have each been removed from the upcoming Bellator 79 card. The event takes place November 2 from Canada.

Daley (30-12-2) was unable to obtain a proper visa to travel from England to Canada, according to a report by MMAFighting.com. He is expected to compete for Bellator in early 2013.

“Semtex” was set to face Kyle Baker in his second Bellator appearance after defeating Rudy Bears. Instead, Baker will meet Ryan Ford.

Dantas (14-3), the Bellator welterweight champion, is still suffering from concussion-like symptoms suffered in a loss to Tyson Nam this past August.

Dantas was scheduled to battle Marcos Galvao for his title. No makeup date has been announced for the championship match.
