Strikeforce Releases Paul Daley
Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley has been actively seeking to be released from his contract with Strikeforce
British welterweight Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley finally gets his wish granted last Sunday. Daley has been released from his contract with Strikeforce promotions.
In a press release handed by his management, Fight Management Limited, Daley stated:
“I’m happy that Strikeforce has granted my request to be released from their roster as I found it difficult to fight so infrequently. My whole career I’ve wanted to fight as often as possible as it keeps me in the best form and condition.”
“I felt that I put on nothing but entertaining fights while at the organization. The KOs of (Duane) Ludwig and Scott Smith were some great memories for me, as well as the back-and-forth fight of the year I had with Nick Diaz. My manager has already started speaking to some promotions about my future today following the official release papers from Strikeforce, and I’m looking forward to the next part in my journey.”
Daley both fought for Strikeforce and UFC promotions. In his most recent bout for Strikeforce last March, he lost to Kazuo Misaki via a split decision, ending his two fight win streak.
He is probably most remembered for his bad departure from UFC. He was immediately dismissed from the promotion for hitting Josh Koscheck, after the bell in the third round of their welterweight bout for UFC 113. Daley lost to Koscheck via a decision.View Article Source »
