Paul Daley Expected to Sign with Strikeforce

Paul DaleyHard-hitting British welterweight and former UFC contender Paul Daley is in talks with Strikeforce and could sign with the promotion as early as this week.

Despite reports of a finalized six-fight deal, Daley’s manager today told MMAjunkie that nothing has been made official and that “Semtex” is still weighing his options ahead of a Sept. 11 bout at Shark Fights 13.

Daley (24-9-2) earned back-to-back wins over Martin Kampmann and Dustin Hazelett to get into the UFC title hunt, but dropped a unanimous decision to Josh Koscheck at May’s UFC 113 and was promptly released by the promotion following a post-fight sucker punch.

He bounced back in June with a third-round submission of Daniel Acacio in Australia in his first post-UFC bout.
