Daly shared her thoughts on signing a contract to compete in Bellator Fighting Championships Season 3 Women’s Tournament, a decision which will bring her to America to fight for the very first time,
“Bellator is the No.1 organization in the world form women’s MMA right now so I jumped at the chance to sign. They have all of the best female fighters in the world signed and I firmly believe that whoever wins the tournament is the best pound-for-pound female fighter in the world. That’s my goal and that’s what I’m coming to the U.S. to do … nobody will remember who finishes second.”
