Welterweight Paul Daley, cut by the UFC following an incident where he punched opponent Josh Koscheck after the bell of their May fight, has signed a six-fight deal with Strikeforce, MiddleEasy.com reports.
Just hours ago, Paul Daley signed a six-fight Strikeforce contract. He will still fight at Shark Fights 13 which will go down September 11th at the Civic Center Coliseum in Amarillo, Texas (sort of a strange date to have an MMA event). His first opponent will be Evangelista Cyborg which denotes that he will still be competing at welterweight.
Paul Daley seems extraordinarily happy with the financial package that he received from Strikeforce. Not sure when Daley will debut in the organization but according to UnitedGlory.nl, he will also be competing in a welterweight tournament (along with Shinya Aoki) which will kick off October 16th and wrap-up April 2011.
Daley has won five of his last six fights, most recently defeating Daniel Acacio by submission at Impact FC last month.
