Canadian born fighter John Alessio returns to his home country to face UK badass Paul “Semtex” Daley at MFC 19 â€œLong Time Comingâ€ on December 5th in Enoch, Alberta, Canada, according to MMAFighting.
â€œIâ€™m super excited for this fight … I think its one of the biggest welterweight fights Canada has seen. Daley brings in good striking and he’s athletic and explosive, this is a big fight for my career.â€
â€œI have a lot of family and friends coming out for this … Itâ€™s great to return to my home country to fight because Iâ€™ve been staying in the US for so long a lot of people forget I am Canadian. I am mostly just looking forward to getting in the ring again. Fighting is what I love to do.â€
