Paul Daley released by Strikeforce
Hard-hitting UK welterweight Paul Daley has been released from his Strikeforce contract this weekend.
The news came via a press release from Fight Management, Paul Daley’s representatives.
“I’m happy that Strikeforce has granted my request to be released from their roster as I found it difficult to fight so infrequently,” Daley stated. “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.”
“Semtex” lost his last fight for the promotion against Kazuo Misaki in March. He did fight for the title, but lost to Nick Diaz after a very entertaining few minutes of action.
It is not yet known where Daley will now ply his trade, with possible promotions being BAMMA, Super Fight League, One FC and Bellator.
More on this when we have it.
