Paul Daley Signs With The UFC
A report from MMA Junkie is saying that Paul Daley (21-8-2) has signed a four fight contract with the UFC to compete in their welterweight division. Daley, who fights out of the UK, was scheduled to fight Jay Hieron at the August 1st Afflcition “Trilogy” event, but has been left hanging as the Afflcition Promotion has shut it’s doors as a fight promotion to reassume their core business as an apparel company. Daley is among many other fighter such as Fedor Emelianenko and Renato “Babalu” Sobral who have been forced to find somewhere besides Affliction to fight. Daley will be joining an UFC’s amazing pool of welterweights that includes fighters such as Jon Fitch, Thiago Alves, Mike Swick, Georges St. Pierre and many other great fighters. Hopefuly, he will be able to come into the division and shake things up a bit.
