One of the world’s best and most controversial fighters, Paul Daley (30-12-2) brings entertainment and talking points both in and out of the cage. Famed for his devastating striking skills and knockout power, Daley fully deserves all his recognition as one of the world’s elite. He has fought all over the world in all of the top promotions and always leaved fans in awe of his performances. There has been some problems regarding his appearance in this fight however all problems between himself and Bellator now seem to have been solved.

Talented Frenchman Patrick Vallee (9-4-1-2NC) comes into what is without doubt the biggest fight of his career. He is well versed in all areas of the game and has fight finishing abilities both on the feet and the ground. He is not in the best of form currently seeing that he has only won two of his last five wins however one of those wins was an impressive submission victory over Andrew Punshon last March.

Cage Contender 16 takes place 23rd February from the National Basketball Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
