3 Star RatingReview by AllTheBestFights.com: 2019-06-22, pretty good fight between Paul Daley and Erick Silva: it gets three stars.

Paul Daley entered this fight with a mma record of 40-17-2 (80% ko/tko victory rate – he has never won via submission) and he is ranked as the No.38 welterweight in the world but ‘Semtex’ won just two out of his last six bouts, against Brennan Ward (4-stars fight, Daley vs Ward) and Lorenz Larkin, both in 2017 (Lorenz Larkin vs Paul Daley); after this fight he has been defeated by Jon Fitch (Jon Fitch vs Paul Daley) and Michael ‘Venom’ Page (Michael Page vs Paul Daley).
His opponent, the black belt in Bjj and judo Erick Silva, has an official record of 20-10-0 (85% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.117 in the same weight class. He beat Nick Barnes last year but he came back to win in 2019 against Yaroslav Amosov. Daley vs Silva is on the undercard of Gegard Mousasi vs Rafael Lovato Jr – Bellator 223.

2 Star RatingReview by AllTheBestFights.com: 2019-06-22, some good exchanges between Gegard Mousasi and Rafael Lovato Jr but it is not enough to get three stars: it gets two.

The black belt in judo, former Strikeforce light-Hw and current Bellator Mw champion Gegard Mousasi entered this fight with a professional mma record of 45-6-2 (84% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.3 middleweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Robert Whittaker). He lost to Uriah Hall in their first fight in 2015 (Mousasi vs Hall I) but then he has won eight bouts taking revenge on Hall in 2016 (Mousasi vs Hall 2) and beating Rory MacDonald in his last one (Gegard Mousasi vs Rory MacDonald).
His opponent, the undefeated black belt in Bjj and former world jiu jitsu champion Rafael Lovato Jr, has a perfect record of 9-0-0 (89% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.24 in the same weight class. In his last three bouts he has won over Chris Honeycutt (Chris Honeycutt vs Rafael Lovato Jr), Gerald Harris (Rafael Lovato Jr vs Gerald Harris) and John Salter (Rafael Lovato Jr vs John Salter). Mousasi vs Lovato, main event of Bellator 223, is valid for the Bellator middleweight title(Mousasi’s second defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
