Bellator MMA has added some proven knockout power to its middleweight divisions.

Nice!!!!

Manhoef vs Daley anyone? I know they're different weights but I'd like to see it.

Love Melvin but he is a novelty signing. Still hope he knocks some heads off. He always reminded me of a MW Mike Zambidis.

Stoked to see this. I doubt he'll climb the ladder to fight for a title, but he will definitely put on some exciting fights.

Bellator is a good fit for him because it's MW division lacks high level wrestlers.

There's really no better place for a guy who gets taken down by a stiff breeze.

Melvin is the man, and this is some awesome news. One of the most entertaining fighters in his division, now goes to Bellator to fight. War Manoef!

You guys are giving Bellator too much credit!

If freakin Doug Marshall can get a title shot then Melvin Manhoef can bring home the belt.

I agree Manhoef vs Daley would be one of the most explosive violent fights in history!

After competing overseas for the last two years, Paul Daley will make his way back stateside later this year, as "Semtex" announced on "The MMA Hour" earlier today (July 21, 2014) that he has inked a deal with Bellator MMA.

And it's all thanks to newly-appointed president of the Viacom-owned mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion, Scott Coker; a guy Daley knows very well, having competed for him four times before during his time as head cheese for the now-defunct Strikeforce organization.

Marshall was caught for cheating, who knows how long he was before he got caught..I mean he was a competely different fighter, he was def much faster..and after he got caught it all made sense why he was looking so good in Bellator..let's see how he does when he comes back..a non-PED Marshall vs Melvin?..
