Via Strikeforce press release:

NEW YORK (Sept. 15, 2010) - Top-10 world-ranked welterweight, Paul Daley, has signed a multi-fight deal with world championship Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) promotion STRIKEFORCE.

The 5-foot-9, 27-year-old native of London who fights out of Nottingham, England, has won two straight and six of his last seven. Overall, the cocky, brash seven-year pro is 25-9-2.

Nicknamed "Semtex" after an explosive that British armed forces use to demolish large structures, Daley is coming off a unanimous three-round decision over recent STRIKEFORCE signee, Jorge Masvidal, last Saturday, Sept. 11. It was the first time since July 1, 2006, that Daley had won a fight on points.

Daley is a freelance mixed martial artist whose style is an aggressive mix of striking, striking and more striking.
"I am a striker - there is no secret about that,'' the exciting British bomber said. "I like to knock people out aggressively and quickly. That's my game and no opponent's going to change that. Almost all my fights are exciting and memorable with non-stop action.''

Who would you like to see Daley matched up with in his first Strikeforce fight? Cyborg Santos? Further in the press release, Daley says he'd like to fight reigning Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz, who fights KJ Noons on Oct. 9.
