MMA By The Numbers: Paul Daley
Jun 10, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck
Strikeforce has announced it has parted ways with veteran welterweight fighter Paul Daley. The 29-year-old London England native requested his release after he was frustrated with not getting scheduled for enough fights. He made the decision after determining he could earn more income fighting more often for smaller organizations. Daley had spent the past couple years competing with Strikeforce after signing a multi-fight contract back in 2010 but had compiled a disappointing 1-3 record. He first debuted in Strikeforce in a 1-fight appearance defeating Duane Ludwig in 2007. He is a Boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu based fighter and is apart of Team Rough House and Mike’s Gym.
Paul Daley is a 9-year mixed martial arts veteran who made his debut back in 2003. Early in his career he was a mainstay in the Cage Rage Championships where he became a 1-Time Cage Rage Welterweight Champion and a 1-Time Cage Rage British Welterweight Champion. He also competed in Pancrease and EliteXC prior to signing with the UFC in 2009. After fighting for the organization for a year he was fired by Dana White after taking a swing post fight at Josh Koscheck at UFC # 113 in Montreal Quebec. Dana White at the time stated Daley would never compete for the UFC again. After fighting for BAMMA he was then signed by Strikeforce. Paul Daley currently has a professional record of 29-12-2.
