Paul Daley dropped a tightly contested loss to rival Michael Page at Bellator 216, and the fighter’s claiming the decision was influenced by other forces.

Daley largely relied on his wrestling and grappling in the headlining fight, but ultimately, the judge’s handed three of the five rounds to page. More recently, “Semtex” posted the comments below on Instagram:

I’m disappointed, MMA politics and Bellator protecting they’re investment. I feel I won 3 rounds to 2. IMO I beat that fool. Really. Close fight. It’s just sad MMA is going the way of Boxing. I’m a “striker” who wrestled so I lose, and the fool they pumped money into wins. 🤔
