In a unique split-broadcast event, Brit Paul Daley earned a unanimous decision over Erick Silva in the main event of Bellator 223 at SSE Arena in London.

He ripped shots to Silva’s body, sapping his energy, while unloading with his patented head-hunting shots, but unable to land the knockout blow.
