Paul Daley vs Cyborg Santos, Set for Strikeforce: Fedor vs Henderson
Following last Saturday's Overeem vs Werdum match, the Strikeforce matchmakers penciled a welterweight clash between Paul Daley and Cyborg Santos next month.
Last Saturday, Strikeforce officials announced that a welterweight duel between Paul Daley and Evangelista ‘Cyborg’ Santos will be part of the upcoming Fedor vs Henderson card. With the Paul Daley vs Cyborg Santos likely to be part of the main card, the upcoming event will kick off on July 30 at the Sears Center Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.
Paul Daley will be returning in the cage after this April loss against current welterweight champion, Nick Diaz. But prior to his TKO Loss, Paul Daley won eight of his nine bouts, with his sole defeat coming from Josh Koscheck at UFC 113. Meanwhile, Evangelista Santos is also coming from a loss against Nick Diaz. His January title match marred his two-fight win streak from Marius Zaromski and Daniel Zarate.
Also in the card is a women’s title fight between reigning champ, Marloes Coenen, and top contender, Meisha Tate. Marloes Coenen will defend her title for the second time, after snatching the title from Liz Carmouche last March.View Article Source »
