Bellator Bolsters Roster with Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley and Melvin ‘No Mercy’ Manhoef

Since the day Bellator President Scott Coker joined the promotion, the goal has been to create the most entertaining fights possible under the Bellator banner. With that in mind, Bellator has added knockout kingpins Paul “Semtex” Daley (34-13) and Melvin “No Mercy” Manhoef (28-11) to the roster. The two veterans have both amassed impressive careers, including an astonishing 51 career knockouts between the two heavy-handed strikers.

Daley rejoins Bellator after a dominating debut in 2012 with a first round knockout over Rudy Bears at Bellator 72. Only 31, the Nottingham based striker is looking to make his mark on the Bellator Welterweight Division.

“Like always, I’m coming into Bellator to put on a show,” Daley said. “I loved working for Coker back in Strikeforce, and when I got the call to possibly come back to Bellator, it was a no-brainer. I feel great, I’m fresh, and I’m going after that belt.”    

Manhoef will join an already deep middleweight division as the Dutch kickboxer brings his finishing skills to the Bellator cage and Spike TV. The former Strikeforce and K-1 veteran is on a mission to provide explosive finishes, and with potential matchups with Alexander Shlemenko, Brennan Ward, Brett Cooper and Doug Marshall on the horizon, fans should expect fireworks inside the Bellator Middleweight Division.

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. We want Bellator to be a destination for not only the top-tier fighters in the sport, but the first-choice destination for fans to see the most entertaining fights in the sport,” Coker said. “Both Paul and Melvin add a level of excitement to the roster that I can’t wait to see inside our cage, and this is just the beginning.”

Super Sunday for Cyclones in Shutout of Williamsport

On Superhero Night at MCU Park the Brooklyn Cyclones (17-19) shutout the Williamsport Crosscutters (18-18) in New York-Penn League action on Sunday.

The star for this game was pitcher Corey Oswalt (3-1) who pitched seven strong innings, striking out five batters. Oswalt was able to continue his positive pitching keeping the opposing team off their game, while being aggressive and attacking the strike zone.

Brooklyn’s offense continued to build on the game they had on Saturday, recording double digit hits for the second straight game. On this day the Cyclones were able to connect for 11 hits with four players recording two hits each; as Jhoan Urena, Michael Conforto, Michael Katz and Michael Bernal all recorded multi-hits in the game.

Urena struck for one of the bigger hits in the bottom of the Second Inning with a two-run double to left-center field. The infielder has now hit safely in six straight games, with four multiple-hit games during that stretch.

Conforto got his first multi-hit game as a professional while also making two plays in his first time patrolling the MCU Park outfield.

Prior to the game the Cyclones added lefthand pitcher Paul Paez to the roster. Paez was last with the Savannah Sand Gnats, where he had an 0-1 record with a 5.87 ERA in 16 games pitch. The Southpaw is no stranger to the Cyclones as he spent the majority of the 2013 season with the team.

1495 Sports is proud to bring the following postgame video featuring Brooklyn Cyclones Manager Tom Gamboa and starting pitcher Corey Oswalt:

The Cyclones and Crosscutters will conclude this three-game set on Monday, as the franchise will once again host Camp Day at MCU Park with a special start time of 11:30 a.m. for all the kids who wish to attend. The pitching match-up for that game is set to be a battle of the righties as Cyclones Marcos Molina (2-1, 0.94 ERA) takes on David Whitehead (2-2, 2.25 ERA).
