Daley has a 3 fight deal so a logical/ideal string of events could be something like;
#1 First fight, cannot compete for title due to Ellis being injured.
#2 Second fight, with Ellis for the belt.
#3 Third fight, first and final title defence before vacating and joining the UFC.
Ofcourse it all depends of certain events happening, Daley winning all his fights for one but also depending of getting a call for the UFC.
Paul Daley is a desirable champion to have for BAMMA but giving him the title considering the length of his deal might not be seen as the best piece of business all things considered.
If he gets his three get TKO/KOs for BAMMA he has done his job, belt or not.
